Also, note that she's standing outside the graveyard. She can't enter because it's holy ground.
I like the idea of the 5 of Cups following from the 4 - but I don't think the flowers are dead and I think she is in the graveyard.
The flowers look to be white - the colour of hope? What about the enclave with the headless person holding a cup and book? Surely, that means something? Something about knowledge of hope remains? I keep thinking of that line from Lord of the Rings, where King Theoden says about the white flower "Cymblemirna, the white flower that covers the grave of my ancestors; shall now cover the grave of my son". . . that sense of hopelessness but hope at the same time.
Somehow the white means rebirth . . . .
