Some pictures of planting in my new raised bed.

This is the mulch I use to deter the cats. It is the hulls of the seedpods of the large catalpa that shades my front yard. I have cleared a spot and sliced through the paper underneath.


Here's a picture of a catalpa seed pod still hanging on the bare tree.

Also a lot of dandelions!

Three New England Pie Pumpkin seedlings. I know, I should snip at least one of them.
I dumped a bucket of soil right there and mixed it in a bit; the rest of the raised bed is filled with straight compost.


Irises are blooming! The purples started opening last week. The whites smell like lemon.

Your irises are gorgeous. Our neighbors have some purple ones that smell just like grape juice. New people have bought the house since last spring, so I'll probably have to explain all over again why I'm down on the sidewalk with my head in their burgeoning daylilies.
