A very big THANK YOU to all the lovely people who came to the book party yesterday and to the Gosh team for being such generous and cool hosts!

In my garden I am equally fascinated and annoyed by the successful symbiosis of ants and aphids.
In Plant City, the ants run a juice bar fuelled by the aphids. A YoSushi type belt moves the sweet green extract around until all customers had their fill. It is the coolest bar in town 😎🐞
