Why We Can’t Have Nice Things – Vol. 76

Dear PoPville,

Second time this week that somebody has cut off the heads of our sunflowers on 14th Street, NW. Saturday’s theft was one that was just starting to bloom. Last night is was a large head that was drying out. Really sucks that you can’t have a garden in a public space that doesn’t get vandalized. So many people have enjoyed these flowers. It’s really disheartening.

Very frustrating. This garden was featured as garden of the day back in June.
