Progress on the walkway is slow because pulling up and putting down bricks and pieces of concrete is not only time consuming it's hard work for someone who did so little during the winter.
A pattern is starting to form as I work toward a fairly smooth walking area. I made no pics of that today. One thing I did was to turn over the stepping stones that had mosaic bits and and seashells. They look better as plain rounds and squares of concrete since there is such a hodgepodge of materials.
Azaleas are opening more blooms daily.
I thought about a whole post about Loropetalum but I think I did that last year. Most of mine have reached tree size. I looked carefully in town today. A long row of Loropetalum between two small strip malls that were neat shrubs 20 years ago are now huge trees with seedlings that came up underneath them making them into a giant hedgerow. Some few of the seedlings have white flowers, which has been my experience here. Lately planted Loropetalums along the 4-lane road into town from the east are pruned into nice neat pillboxes.
MIL did not know about the power of stakes. I am forbidden to use rebar stakes now after the 'incident' last year, but the mower will respect a heavy wood stake.
Tulip Progress. They are still pale but
I saw tiny purple lines on the edges.
A favorite late Daffodil. I wish I knew its name. Fragrant.
My best guess is that it is Misty Glen.
