Grounds Worth A Latte

Greetings and Holykisses,

What can I say, "I LOVE Starbucks." I love the artsy posters hanging inside. I love their colored- chalk menu boards with all the swirls, curls and flourishes. Love trying new coffees; ... and the frothier the better. Love the colorful mugs, and thanks to Myguy and my adorable niece Jamie I have a cute, little collection started.

Lately, I've been stuck on tall, skinny vanilla latte's. And when I haven't eaten; look out-- It's go for the gusto: Vente marble, mocha machiato paleeze! (Mmmm, what a treat!)

My last visit, swinging thru the drive thru was even more fun than usual. This particular day, I was greeted by a cheerful, young person offering this free gift!

Not just any gift, but a gift to make any gardener very, very, very happyYYyyYYYyyyYY! Who in their right mind would say no to a huge, free bag of STARBUCKS coffee grounds? Not me!

Tomorrow my blueberries, azaleas and hydrangeas are going to be squealing for sheer joy when they are the proud recipients of this very fragrant bag of grounds. (a whiff smells soooo good!) Kinda makes ya wanna go back for a second cup! ;)
Read how to use these grounds at Starbucks!

Happy Gardening!

Both my daughters and grandchldren like Starbucks. I have only had a few. I can't afford the calories, but don't take my GIF Cafe' Francais INSTANT coffee away from me. I allow myself 2 cups per day.

If anyone deserved a free bag of coffee, it was you. You have worked so hard lately you needed a nice reward.

Starbucks - I adore Starbucks "grande caramel latte extra hot" please rolls off my tongue like butter on a hot pancake! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. It is fun meeting someone new! Especially when this dyed in the wool city girl gets to live vicariously through stories of cantankerous donkeys, injured ducks, goats, yellowstone eggs (my husband would love those eggs - thanks for recipe) shared by wonderful writers like yourself.

I will be coming back soon!
