Step Out

Unseasonably warm and then icy and cold. Nashville is not so different from Knoxville and many other parts of the southeast in that spring plants emerge during warm spells and are then blasted back. Pictured below are various plants and sites in winter dormancy. This time of year is for walking, seeing, locating, noting, and planning.

Landward, ho!

Two medium-sized changes over at Land Scout central.
1.We're relocating to Nashville, TN.
2. I'm adjusting the name of the project and occasionally dropping the "urban" from the land scouts.

There are two reasons behind the second change.
a) The cadence of Land Scouts is nicer.
b) The shorter name allows for place-specific iterations like the Nashville Land Scouts, the Chicago Land Scouts, the Your-Neighborhood-Here Land Scouts while keeping the various groups under the larger heading of the Urban Land Scouts.

Look forward to more Land Scouting coming out of Middle Tennessee. Thanks to the many wonderful scouts and stewards in East Tennessee who've helped test out, refine, and embody the Land Scouts to date.

Happy 2013 to all!
