Arlington, VA, United States, 2011/05/23 - Flowers are an important part of the tradition at Arlington Cemetery. Retail florists deliver thousands of flowers and actually place the bouquets on the grave for families who can not make the visits themselves - Conklyns.com.
Memorial Day is an important time to stop and remember the men and women, who fight for this country and Conklyn’s Florist, will do its part by delivering hundreds of memorial wreaths, baskets and vases of cut flowers to the graves and memorials in Arlington Cemetery.
“Given the recent military actions in Pakistan and Afghanistan, patriotic sentiment is particularly high. Our shop is usually busy over Memorial Weekend, but this year we expect a record outpouring of civic pride to coincide with the observation,” said Paul Brockway, Owner, Conklyn’s Florist.
Flowers and American flags have always been an important part of the Memorial Day tradition. For those military families who may not live in the area, decorating a soldier’s gravesite for Memorial Day isn’t always possible. Conklyn’s can carry the burden by designing and delivering floral remembrances to the gravesites to honor the real life heroes who protected the interests of the United Sates.
With a location in the Pentagon building across the street from Arlington Cemetery, Conklyn’s Florist, can easily deliver fresh floral memorials and place them on each individual gravesite. Examples of available gravesite remembrances in every price range can be viewed online.
