J. Downend Prepares Pearl Harbor Memorial for 2012 Show


With December 7 marking the 70th anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor, J. Downend Landscaping has been in the news for its in-the-works Flower Show exhibit that will commemorate the “date which will live in infamy.”

According to the newsworks.org article, “[Tom Morris’s] scaled-down re-creation of the USS Arizona Memorial will be a heady mix of patriotism, tragedy, and floral beauty. The construction will be floating in a pond inside the Pennsylvania Convention Center, surrounded by royal palms, fragrant plumeria, and white peace lilies.” Read the full story here.

Pretty amazing. To read more about J. Downend Landscaping’s thought-provoking piece, dubbed “Remembrance,” check out this article in the Delaware County Daily Times.
