Graveyard Posies

Graveyard posies

In a cemetery: “Persons are prohibited from picking flowers from any but their own grave.” Found in a local print newsletter this week.

Have you ever taken flowers from a cemetery? I have. Shocking? It isn’t really. Plastic flowers blow around and end up being dumped into the trash. They can’t be recycled unless someone comes along and reuses them. I did find it hard to sort through and pick out flowers that were still in good shape. I used to have new flowers once a month in a vase on my kitchen table, most or all of them from local cemeteries.

Do you think that was wrong or was it just thrifty recycling?
