There are those folk who move to Texas and then spend a fair amount of their time here complaining about the ways things are.
Fact of the matter, you live in one place you have to worry about hurricanes. Or earthquakes. You live in some other place you don't do anything but read about other people's hurricanes and/or earthquakes (though hopefully not both in one place).
One of the major complaints about living in Texas for gardening types, once you get past the season of Death Star Dominance running May through mid September or so, is that there is not a lot of "Fall Color".
The Central Texas tree line is dominated by so many oak and juniper trees with their green all winter status that even though creeper vines, sumac and cedar elm trees do their best to give us a few pops of yellow and orange and occasionally red? We simply do not get a brilliant display of leaves in Fall colors the way other parts of the country enjoy.
As a native who moved away and then returned, I've seen in other places what others are saying they are missing here every Autumn. But.
I would propose to you that there IS indeed some Fall Color in Texas. I will offer to you there is a color I have named specifically for this time of year when cooling temperatures can (though they aren't this year!) bring rain, and all the plants seem to breathe a little easier for having survived another August/September.
Part art, part family china history lesson.
The shards are laid out on and gently pressed into a bed of gravel so they allow water to percolate through and can be raked up and out of the way if the need arises. The broken plate mulch mosaic does not fade in the sun (though it can get dusty!) nor does it require any particular temperature ranges or supplemental water for support. I'll admit, I'm quite smitten.
So. Fall Color? Yup. We've got that covered.
One final note today. I realized as I pulled the following photo out to post, that I will have little room to criticize a certain political candidate who experienced a 53 second long "human moment" as part of a televised national debate recently.
