The incomprehensible end of Mary's Eden....

On the 22nd of September I posted pictures of a veggie garden that was started by Mary near Kenilworth station, usin...g seeds collected from neighbourhood bins.
This morning, almost exactly 2 months later, to the day, a distraught Mary came looking for me on my morning walk through the suburb. Her Eden has been demolished "by council law enforcement".
"They said I was growing dagga and selling the vegetables" she explained in exasperated disbelief.
"I had just picked the beetroot for the table at home and the carrots were this big". She showed me a ruler-length imaginary carrot.
"They said some of the residents complained".
She looked at me with the eyes of a woman who has just miscarried a child she was longing to raise...
"I am so very very sorry Mary" was my impotent response.
She asked if I had photographs of her vegetables and if I would send them to her sister please.
I go to sleep, heavy hearted at her lost Eden.
I am filled with sorrow still.
