April showers bring May flowers; Mayflowers bring pilgrims; pilgrims bring turkey dinners; turkey dinners bring mom to rescue the green beans from overcooking. This Mother's Day, show thanks for your mom's limitless care and coaching with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of flowers and chocolates at Flowers by Timothy & Snelgrove's Confection in Windsor.
A third-generation florist, Timothy Snelgrove has spent years training flowers to work together in colorful, cooperative arrangements. The Burst of Joy bouquet bundles carnations, delphinium, and waxflower into a phantasmagoric thank you to maternal units for not trading you to the doctor for a Barry Bonds rookie card ($49.95). The Basket of Cheer's rustic basket of pink spray roses, daisy poms, and carnations will speed the healing process for any malady from the sniffles to a head transplant ($49.95), and the Dashing Daisies captures a summery yellow valentine inside a glass bubble bowl ($34.95).
If your giftee doesn't like the taste of flowers, express yourself more edibly with Timothy Snelgrove's cornucopia of confections. Expand a loved one's collection of rare gourmet truffles with a chocolate cookie truffle ($3.25), or pack your favorite clone's body vault with ingots of handmade Oreo pretzels ($8.95). Romantics, however, can stick to the timeless chocolate-covered strawberries ($2.95 each) and forget their ill-conceived attempt to heighten the mood with chocolate-covered radishes.
