I volunteer at the Museum of Science and Industry in the butterfly garden exhibit. My bosses are extremely creative people and they've got a lot of fall-themed decorations right now. But my favorite are these plant tombstones they have in our butterfly flight cage exhibit. I thought you guys would get a laugh (and maybe some inspiration) out of them.

Edited because I found the article where they show you how to make them! One of my bosses is also the social media manager for Birds and Blooms magazine so it's posted there: http://birdsandblooms.com/blog/gravestone-diy-plant-markers/

The gals at MOSI are creative and they both have a great sense of humor. I'm glad I could share these with everyone here at ATP!
