I understand you declined. No explanation was given for your inaction on Lewiston's incomplete proposal.
Should the MSBPA request a reimbursement for the mowed flowers at the Main Street Sign, please see my note below declines, though I appreciated their offer. M

I don't want, need, or expect reimbursement or replacement from the city or anyone else. I just think it's sad.
Not because I purchased and planted them, but because some bright spot, flowers or hope, bloomed in this city despite all the crummy odds.
They didn't have to be destroyed. Call it metaphoric, or not, they left a dead tree standing.
