Letting nature back in celebrates the creatures and plants that inhabit and enrich suburban spaces. Most of the images were taken in my own suburban garden reflecting that there is still life in suburban spaces. Letting nature into our suburbs, gardens and households can shift our priorities with an emphasis on letting go rather than reigning in, on sanctuary rather than orderliness. Letting nature in enriches us. Let’s celebrate!

About me: naturebackin 1I live and work in a suburban space in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands in South Africa. Mostly indigenous plants shelter and feed the wild creatures and birds that live here too. In parallel I have a small kitchen garden. Contact me at naturebackin@mweb.co.za
