Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

"The old orchard stood beseiged"
The orchard, where in sits the bee hive this book is about, is in the midst of a city, so there is industry and housing closing in on all sides. Not great for bees. But they manage! Makes me glad I planted more flowers in my little garden this year.
