100 Word Wednesday: Week 139

This week we have another picture from Cyranny to inspire us.
Thanks to Bikurgurl for setting the challenge. You can join in here.
It was an experiment thought up by local environmentalists and the councils, though many scoffed at the chances of success.
Concrete jungles were everywhere: condos, car parks, office blocks and shopping malls had been erected at every opportunity, replacing natural parks and habitats of wildlife.
It was no longer a novelty to see a fox running down the street having scavenged in trash dumpsters for scraps to survive.
These latest pentagonal cuboids were intended to replace sacrificed trees and to attract birds to nest. No-one thought as to where they would find the necessary nesting materials to do just that.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Over a walk way? I guess we’ll need an umbrella on that part of town now.

    Sad but not far from the truth in some areas. At least they are trying, but perhaps razing the city center and replacing the concrete jungle with a forest or prairie oasis could help everyone and every animal 🖤 An issue bear and dear to my heart 🖤 Thank you for your always poignant perspectives 😊
