I just stumbled upon an untapped treasure trove...cemetery garbage cans! I strolled through a local cemetery during my lunch hour, in hopes of coming across an old rose bush or shrub from which I could take a few cuttings. There was nothing of interest growing, but in the trashcans, I found 9 potted chrysanthemums!! Ofcourse they LOOKED dead, but as we all know, they just need a hefty trim and will come back beautifully. I can't wait till Saturday...I am going to check out every garbage can in every cemetery in town!!!
