Midtown Wildlife Paradise

When we first bought our 1000sq ft home at Loring Heights in Midtown, we never thought we were going to be surrounding by the most amazing variety of birds, insects, raccoons, squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks and possums. As Nature lovers, my husband and I have planted many shrubs including native for the area, many blooming plants and shelter edgings.  When we planted trees, shrubs, and flowers around our home, we also built homes for a whole community of animals. Over the years we have provided  animals with food by planting a mix of plants that produce seed or fruit at different times of the year and by using  feeders, water in birdbaths and fountains, shelter and installing bird houses for them to nest.

Furthermore, we do not use ANY chemicals in our garden, we use organic fertilizers and none insecticides at all.

Enjoy these beautiful pictures from our backyard wildlife paradise and keep in mind that your backyard can become a better home for the wildlife already living there and a home for new wild neighbors.

One thought on “Midtown Wildlife Paradise

  1. Sometimes our life is too fast, sometimes we don’t appreciate our surroundings, we share our space with so many beautiful creatures that we don’t pay attention to them, congratulations Adriana for this wonderful collection of pictures, they are all beautiful.
