Give Mom a Garden Instead of a Rose



    What You Didn't Know About Daylight Saving Time
    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  and look for the Mother's Day icon.
