Is a sea of concrete and asphalt, wildlife are driven to Urban Green Roofs in masses.
Walking outside this cool, sunny morning the insects were buzzing around the green roof plants. Some of the vegetables on the food roof were forming flowers and word had quickly spread to the pollinators.
Not to be proven wrong by the oft-quoted UK's John Ray (A collection of English proverbs 1670, 1678)
the birds were hanging out in the trees waiting for breakfast."The early bird catcheth the worm."

While other areas of the Urban Core whither away without plants, we find ourselves in a mini-oasis of wildlife.
The photos here were taken with my son's Canon EOS Rebel about two hours ago.
Green Roofs - promoting biodiversity in the Urban Core!
Happy Green Roofing!
