  1. I was happy to see a reference to Terry Tempest Williams and The Hour of Land. I just read it in September and can highly recommed it to other Root Simple readers. I am ashamed to say that I wouldn’t be able to identify all of them if I saw them (catkin and cowslip, anyone?), but many are everyday terms (dandelion, acorn, fern, mistletoe).

    Interesting how all the deleted terms describe living beings that take up physical space and can be felt with our hands while the new terms all describe intangible, ungraspable things.
