As for me, I wish I had known about these miracle dirt balls before I got the cemetery. I would have loved to have somebody come behind me and take a digital photo, e-mail it to me and let me see what had bloomed as a result of such a great idea. For me, I'll just have to start making my own, to throw on the vacant areas that the banks have left due to possessing the homes from people who couldn't pay their mortgages. Maybe we could invent dirt balls to throw at the banks that would bloom into flowers of conscience. They sure would enhance the view.
