This little lot is a puzzle to me. At the height of the real estate bubble, some bright light bought this little plot of land, across from the Winn-Dixie shopping center. Soon a magnificent sign went up announcing a future condo building. Three or four stories tall and with a wonderful view of a strip mall in front or scraggly woods on the other three sides. The sign slowly faded. Then machinery showed up and dug a beautiful retention pond (these are necessary here to keep the rest of the lot dry enough to build on) and put in a slab.
The next thing put on the land was a for sale sign. Since then the plot has changed hands a few times and there have been some more promotional signs. The real estate bubble burst and the land has lain fallow ever since. My favorite weed, the dog-sorrel, has taken over and the latest sign is slowly disappearing.

Being housebound these last two weeks has limited my subject matter. But, I am home at times of the day when the light is wonderful. This is a cement bench in our front doorway with lovely shadows that I usually miss while I work out.

These were shot in one of two or three places around here that were cleared for a building project just before the economy tanked. A cleared field is weed heaven. The toughest sun lovers come first and the larger shade throwers slowly crowd them out. I love these spots and try to look at them once a week or so to see changes.

I realize that people should know what Roscoe looks like. It is almost dead straight for most of it's length with a few curves at the southern end. The west side lots front on the Intracoastal Waterway and the east side lots back up on the woods. It's a great place to live.
