the perfect gift for mom

for some reason, i am completely and totally stumped about mother's day this year. i just can't get it together to locate The Perfect Gift for my oh-so-fabulous mother.

if only she were going to be in the san francisco area for the big day, my problems would all be solved. thanks to the amazing poppytalk, i stumbled on this truly fantastic gift idea. the lovely people at branch floral design and small stump are hand delivering the above. it's a gorgeous floral arrangement in a birch bark vase (how cool is that?), presented on a bed of wheatgrass set in a reuseable tray, and topped off with a lovely, scented pansy sachet...all for an incredibly reasonable $100.

i think it's the prettiest thing i've seen in a long time, and it literally hurts my heart that i can't find a way to get it chez maman.
