Nature Runneth Over

Urban Nature
What may seem contradictory (urban and nature) isn't necessarily the case in Detroit. In many neighborhoods there are vacant lots where nature takes its course and well... just starts growing. Case in point is in the video. At one time it was an empty lot waiting to be developed into condominiums that were sprouting up :) in the neighborhood. Then the real estate market took a turn for the worse. No more development, and hello Mother Nature.

Not for Everyone
Now some people may not like the overgrowth of the lot. However, it doesn't really bother me. I suppose it would be nice to have more housing, but the trees and tall grass are pleasant enough. What do you think?
