First Snow of 2015

Harpeth Trace woke up to a light blanket of snow on Saturday morning. Other than a very light dusting earlier in the month, it was the first snow of 2015 – and just enough to be beautiful and bright, without being a hazard. The bridge and parts of the road did freeze very late, but Sprout landscaping came out to salt the roads at 3 in the morning!

Many neighbors were out enjoying the natural beauty of our surroundings. Here are some great photos sent in by several of them – Enjoy!

New HT Wildlife Page

HT Bird Collage

Check out the new Harpeth Trace Wildlife page! We love the biodiversity of our neighborhood, so we’ve got a new page to showcase and document it. Yes, your friendly neighborhood HT webmaster admits to being partial to the birds, but there’s some love there for the furry creatures too…

Our neighborhood in the trees is a perfect habitat for many native species of birds and other animals, and we’re a corridor between the Warner Parks and the soon-to-be-annexed Hill Property and Birch Reserve. High up on a hill, we’re also a prime stopping-off point for migrating forest birds.

If you’ve got pics of other species not represented, please share! Email them to info@harpethtrace.org. They don’t have to be award-winning photos, they just have to be taken right here in the neighborhood.
