Tell us again why you would pour "gallons of color" onto the soil? What kind of color? It doesn't sound very good for the soil.

Volunteering this morning then home to work in this typical-colored soil. The other day I trimmed some salvia around the two new plantings (last year at this time I put in a transplanted eastern redbud and a newly-purchased American beautyberry) and put mulch out. When they lose their leaves I want them to still be conspicuous in the landscaping. I have a lot more of that work to do and several new plants to put in the garden from their pots.

The house needs work, but this burst of nice fall weather has distracted me from that work. The girls are out back hunkered down under the baldcypress trying to rid the backyard of one more squirrel. It keeps them busy and their catch rate is very low. Only two so far that I know of.
