A Cat. A Place. A Girl.
It begins with an extraordinary cat named Alexandria who lived in Alexandria Virginia. The cat met an untimely end. The people could only agree on the name Alex for their beloved ones, so it passed to the little girl who was born to them a few months later. Seeds were gathered, pilfered, and begged from courtyard gardens all over the city of Alexandria. Then the people left the city 700 miles behind. When the weather warms a garden will be planted by the girl and her family with seeds from the city in honor of the cat. In three ways it will be Alexandria's garden.
