I love the idea of the weeping Buddhist.

I also like the idea of bulbs she can plant in her garden - maybe ones that naturalize, so they'll go on and on and on (if you're anything like me, that'll remind her of you :-)).

Bonsai plants are very specialized, and require careful care. They die fairly easily if you don't know the basics - they aren't like other plants. I have had one for about 15 years, it's now about 30 years old, and I must be very careful with it. It would be a pity if you gave her something that died later.

I am going to give my T a drawing or painting I've done since I've been seeing him. I think I'll give him one of the early ones that are so full of turmoil.

There is an indoor (tropical) plant called a maternity plant that has little babies that drop off and root.

Something that will remind her of your success. Something she can keep in her office, and if ever she is discouraged about one of her clients, she might look at it and be reminded of how well you did. That's one of the reasons I like the idea of the weeping Buddha.

I love Eliot's Old Possum's etc.. I've always had a copy, for as long as I can remember. There is a version that's illustrated by "Edward Gorey" that is glorious, absolutely my favourite edition.

Hope this helps.
