Regarding the article “Remove a magnolia?” (May 18):
I find it ironic that a garden club would advocate for the total removal of all blooming plants and rosebuds at the Leflore County Courthouse, even to the extent of plowing under and poisoning with Roundup.
Crossing the bridge and seeing that burst of color is very uplifting.
Silvana Rausa didn’t quit tending to the courthouse landscape because she isn’t able to work anymore. She stopped when she asked for help and was told her standards were too high.
