Sure, Earth Day is just a few days away (how are you celebrating?) and, as a result, there’s been a whole lot of Mother Nature attention-lavishing going down. But let us not forget that sneaking up in just a couple of weeks is a very special Sunday that's dedicated to another special mother ... the one that you call "Mom." 

Do you have a Mom, cave-dwelling or not, that you’d like to green? Then consider bestowing her with one of these 10 — cus that's what my mom scores — home- and (mostly) garden-centric Mother's Day gifts ranging from fanciful (succulent shoes!) to practical (underwear dryers!) and everything in between. And don't forget to send your granny flowers and a card, too!
