Wild Mitchell Street Destroyed

In early May I posted about Wild Mitchell Street. I was excited to see at the end of June that things had really run riot. I was poised to return to the space to take some more photos.

However, it seems I was too slow. In their infinite wisdom the council arranged for it all to be cut down. Of course no one entertained the idea of “chop and drop” to at least let the vegetation work as mulch and rebuild the soil – to what end I suppose?
