The lockdown has left the city centre of Dublin very peaceful the past couple of months. This made me notice a hidden world – the world of urban wildlife and plants. We live right next to the park of Dublin City Council and on top of their parking garages they have let wildflowers and grass take over. They even have bug hotels installed. It is like a little patch of wild meadow in the middle of the concrete jungle. Looking at the city through the blades of grass it made me imagine how pretty it would be if there were more areas like this. Lockdown has given us a look at how much more quiet and nature friendly our cities can be and I really like this alternative vision.
