Thread Name: Elderflower Champagne
Subject: RE: Elderflower Champagne
My Ex-Ma-inlaw wanted to make some elderflower wine one time. So we went out one afternoon and gathered a huge tub of elderflowers for her. She left them in the kitchen that night. However, when she went into the kitchen the next morning to start the wine, she found that the whole kitchen was covered with millions of little black flies (really millions, they were thick all over the ceiling an dwalls). She had to throw out the flowers and clean the kitchen from top to bottom.

She never tried that again.
