Patriotic Plantings


A couple of years ago, the Police Chief asked if I would design a landscape plan for the Veteran's Memorial in Town. The pro bono in me smiled and my drafting pen curtsied.
Now completed, this particular landscape project sends me at this time of year. To commemorate each of the Veterans with headstones at the Memorial, I scheduled 2184 white daffodils to be planted in constructed gunwales along the axial roadway of the cemetery.
I love how the sea of swaying white flowers brings a scaled movement to the landscape of static headstones. In respect for the sacrifice of these soldiers, the flowers bloom in preparation for Memorial Day every Spring.
