July 21 through July 29 They just rip out the flowers Lang said referring to the individuals guilty of defacing the boxes and their contents You wonder what in the world people are thinking but maybe they arent The Titusville Garden Club places planters like the one pictured to the right around the city each summer Recently they have become targets of vandalism Herald photo by Karen Dillemuth ;
