This lady (I use the term loosely) was obviously a lousy neighbor, although
I do understand if she felt she was entitled to the bed outside her own
window.  If these are officially common areas, the best move would be a
preemptive strike: make a deal with the management whereby you are
responsible for maintaining the flowerbeds (maybe even for a nominal fee).
Then her actions would be legally criminal and not just morally so.  I guess
she thought the iris might get in the way of her gazanias and dandilions.
