Our iWitness website has had a tint of green as we invited our members to show off their green fingers and send in photos of them getting up close with nature.

We have had plenty of submissions from bees collecting pollen from flowers in the garden, classic green bottles being lined up against the wall to crops of beans being grown in our iWitness members’ back gardens.

We want to see photos from your trips to the beach and by the seaside, from glorious sunsets reflecting out on to the waters to busy beach huts lined up along the coast and everything in between.

To take part, become a Suffolk iWitness member - and you could see your pictures online or in one of our newspapers.
