Why give mom just one rose, or even a bouquet this weekend, when you can give her a whole garden for about the same price?
The idea of sending Mom a dozen roses for Mother's Day has been spruced up by the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy.
In honor of the holiday, patrons can adopt a rose in the San Jose Heritage Rose Garden as a gift for Mom.
For $50, individuals will receive potpourri from the rose garden, a chocolate truffle from Schurra's Fine Confection, a handmade bar of bee's wax soap from the Sacred Bee, and a personalized inscription for Mom installed next to her rose for a year.
To adopt a rose, visit the conservancy's website at www.grpg.org and look for the Mother's Day icon.
