I was recently reading on my town's official website. I noticed they have a list of rules for the town cemetery. Paraphrasing one of the rules, you are not allowed to plant any flowers unless you have made arrangements with the city manager. Judging from the placement of the flowers I have seen planted there, I'm assuming this is because they don't want the guy on the mower to have to slow down any. Another rule is that all potted plants must be removed 10 days after Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, And Memorial Day. Wonder what happens to the potted plants that are not removed by the 11th day? In today's attitude of disposable everything, combined with the attitude that "they pay someone to do that," I can't see a majority of people going back to pick up the flowers they left. I would assume that non-gardening people might buy them, drop them off, and never think about it 'til the next time they drop off flowers. I have driven past there in spring, and seen many, many pots of spring flowers. More tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils than I have room for. It seems a shame that they would just go to waste. On the understanding that the cemetery is closed at dark, do you think it would be acceptable to make a pass through there at dusk, and pick up any orphans? Maybe I should call the city, or the cemetery, and ask if there is a "dumping ground" for these pots of flowers?
