Compost Your Flowers

If your flowers begin to wither and turn brown, you can always resort to composting them. Compost is great for planting a tree in the honor of your loved one. As the tree is growing, it will remind you of your loved one daily and you’ll always have a remembrance item right in your front yard. This is a great way to let death grow into new life.
