I'm afraid most of you are right. If I want flowers by my barn, I'd better get silk ones. Or maybe have hanging baskets or something that can be moved out of reach for when the horses are turned out nearby.

Which brings me to the subject of today's post: how and where to get free silk flowers for your jumps. The short answer: from a cemetery maintenance crew. With permission. (I'm not suggesting grave robbing here. I'm suggesting that you ask for the flowers that they would otherwise throw away.)

I used to work in an office across the street from a huge perpetual care cemetery.
