--------- Blog 3.1: surveying: seedlings and paths

16/07/16 afternoon, Sunny, top 12C.
Went to the Botanical Gardens, walked around twice, decided that the seedlings planted, enclosed by plastic and stakes to shelter them, were an interesting pattern and site. A few days previous I watched a council person planting them. His footsteps were still evident in amongst the soil in the area. Walking in the indents of the footprints, I traced out a new path. There were traces of practice - the action of planting the seedlings was left in the footprints.

Then, using a folding ruler, I tried to survey and measure the footsteps and new paths, aligning to previous traces of activity, and the seedlings’ new structures and positions.
