However, having said all that, the coffee plants seemed to have been stirred into action recently and the teeniest tiniest little leaves have started to appear on them. It's not all that easy to take a photo that shows the growth at it's best, but here are a couple.

It'll be a bit like 'Where's Wally' looking for the tiny leaves - though you'll be looking for extremely small bright green bits and not red and white stripes obviously - but they are there, I promise you.
Sadly there's the usual winter brown bits too, but I've never got to the bottom of why that happens, it just does.
Well that's that then. A May coffee plant update. The next one will probably happen in a few months so don't hold your breath and in the meantime there'll be lots more Guide Dog news for sure.
I'm actually off to facilitate my retreat until next Tuesday, so see you back here then.
