It’s funny how you can still find pieces of nature in the city. Whether it is Morelia or Uruapan, we have been able to enjoy a little bit of nature in our city-dwelling homes. Whenever we find an insect, a plant, or maybe even an animal, (like that night Taylor found an opossum in the trash), we try to make it a family affair and include the kids. After all, nature is a beautiful gift from God that we were met to enjoy, both in the city and in the country :-) In Mexico most of the population is located in the cities. Cities are crowded and yards are hard to come by. We do have some beautiful parks though, and almost every home has flowers galore, in spaces big and small. It seems like everyone is trying to find their nature in the city. Nature just makes you feel good. Peaceful, serene, relaxed, stress-free, and happy. If you live in a city, what is your nature? Enjoy our photos of nature in the city :-)

    Lovely photos! It is important to find nature even in the most crowded of cities. My daughter loves touching leaves and flowers in the park (and picking up leaves off the ground), seeing little birds and just being outside and exploring. We don’t have a garden, but at least there’s a park nearby.
    Incidentally, I’ve been wanting to go and see the monarch butterflies for years, but it’s still on my must-do list!

    Lovely as always Tina!!!
    I love that you hunt out nature while living in the city :) we definitely aren’t in the city and are surrounded by nature but definitely still realise the importance in taking time to appreciate it :)
    Thanks so much for joining in with #myexpatfamily always lovely to have you x

    I know I’m just echoing what others have said, but this really is a lovely post! We live in a very city-ish city too, which is something I’ve often grumbled about. It’s such a great idea to stop and appreciate all the bits of nature you do see, no matter where you are, and in fact when I think about it even Milan has many beautiful spaces too.

    Such a great concept for a post. Gibraltar is also very built up and I thrive on all the greenery that there is. MM and I make the most of it on a daily basis! #myexpatfamily
