The gardens are beginning their fall metamorphosis. Flowers have come and gone; others continue to provide bright spots of color. The trees are beginning to turn and some are already losing their leaves. Thanks for coming to visit Sunsplash Gardens - enjoy!
You may wonder why I compost in the fall rather than the spring. The main reason is because we will soon be raking up pine needles to apply as mulch, and I want the compost topdressing next to the ground, not on top of my fresh mulch.
