Mysterious gardener brightens Lincoln sidewalks
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Someone is brightening up downtown Lincoln and perhaps providing a little safety by planting flowers in sidewalk cracks.
Snapdragons, zinnias and coleus bloomed from the cracks of a block-long stretch of sidewalk on Thursday.
Zach Millikan spotted the flowers on his way to his barber shop. He says it's a ``good little alarm'' so no one would trip in the cracks, some of which are more like potholes for pedestrians.
Millikan says he recently called the city and was told all the sidewalk repair money is gone.
No one has taken responsibility _ or credit _ for the flowers.
The downtown association has been plunking the flowers and replanting them in designated beds where they'll be tended and water.
