What birthday gift do you get the 17 year old boy who only wants items related to video games that any right-thinking parent would abhor?

A flowering plant, that's what!

You laugh, but I tried it.  At first, Finnian laughed too but, as it rapidly grew and changed, I noticed him taking good care of it.  Tending it with tenderness, if I may say so.

Now it is blooming in the most absurdly, outrageously gorgeous manner.  Do I detect a note of pride in his voice when he points this out?

My son, who followed me around in my vege garden as soon as he could walk, loves plants and treats them like special pets. What a great present idea. Oh...and best wishes to Finn!
