Reply Lea says: March 23, 2017 at 9:07 pm I think about this sometimes when I toss them out… sometimes, I stop and soak up their transformation before letting them go… Reply artmusedog says: March 24, 2017 at 7:20 am Sign of our society’s values I think ~ lovely haiku though, thanks, Wishing you a delightful weekend ~ ^_^ ps. I used to press flowers and re use them ~ thanks for reminding me ~ Reply readinpleasure says: March 24, 2017 at 7:36 am Ow how sad. Reminds of a song from childhood days about a flower left in the sun to wither without any water or nourishment. 🙂 Reply judie says: March 24, 2017 at 7:46 am I always put my faded flowers out under the palms to disintegrate back into the earth, and maybe a bird will find a seed, too. Of course, you wanted to know what everyone does with their faded flowers, right? Happy day! 🙂 Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: March 24, 2017 at 8:52 am I’m guessing that more people toss the faded flowers into the trash than into the compost heap. On Fri, Mar 24, 2017 at 7:46 AM, Mark M.
