Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • To show respect for the departed, friends and family may place decorations, or flowers, on or near the graves of their loved ones. For example, a flower stand may be used to hang a bouquet of flowers next to a grave. In such an example, the flower stand may be inserted into the ground adjacent the grave, wherein a bouquet of flowers may be hung from the stand. In another example, flowers may be placed directly on the tombstone using a flower baskets or stand that the flowers are packaged in. In such examples, however, the stand and/or basket is not firmly attached to the tombstone. As a result, external forces, such inclement weather, other visitors, groundskeepers, and/or animals may knock the decorations off the stand or tombstone, which generally destroys the decorations. Such an event facilitates increasing the amount of money visitors spend on substitute decorations and facilitates increasing the amount of time visitors spend cleaning the grave area.
