SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Flowers or candy? Shops are busy with last-minute customers picking up something for their moms this weekend.

At Fillmore Florist, in San Francisco, workers have been busy over the past two days filling orders for flowers.

Shop owner Fred Tabar (tuh-BAHR') says it's the second-busiest occasion, topped only by Valentine's Day.

He says most customers prefer pinks and purples when it comes to flowers for their mothers, and most don't even ask about the price until after they've selected the arrangement that they like.
