I usually go into the nursery in town & tell them that I need something for my mom. They know our entire family. They usually know what mom wants better, too. lol I think we actually have a gift vertificate for a few plum tree at that nursery...maybe I'll get her that!
I an not really that insensitive. Last year, I got her a gift from all of us kids as two of the four of us couldn't get home. I got a bouquet of differnt colored roses, one of her favorite flowers mixed in, a set of stepping stones for her garden...and of course, a kitty statue for her garden!
Hey Mack! Maybe you could get her a kitty! lol
