A blog based loosely on my mission to grow coffee plants in the Scottish Borders and make my very own cup of espresso.
But to be frank you'll probably read more about my puppy walking for Guide Dogs for the Blind and all the other things I do because the coffee plants are very (and I mean VERY) slow growers.

This week's poetry challenge
I know how much some of you (no names, no pack drill) are loving the challenge that is my poetry course, so I thought I'd let you know this week's assignment which I got today and then I'll sit back and wait to see what you come up with:
Essentially we have to pick a photo of someone (not ourselves) and write about it starting with the line: This is a photograph of me.
We've been given loads of photographic examples e.g. the ones on Mary Ellen Mark's webpage and as always we can use one of the suggested ones or pick any photo or subject we like.
So come on you poets out there, have a go.
Me? No, I'll be thinking about it until about 5 mins before it has to be posted and do my usual panic poem!
