DrSoosie - And all on one tree! I was amazed. I need to start adding more narrative to these...

BMB - O thought it was also..(LOL)
Theree were so many petals on the ground that it looked like snow.

Oh Pat,

I'll eat the cost of the 1/2 and 1/2 myself!!! LOL!@

That truly is my fav drink. A True White Russian (not the pre-mix!! will cost you what now in a restaurant,--$8-10.00 easy???

And WORTH every penny I might add!!!!!
