Set in stone

We've had amazing summer-like weather for the past week, and my flowers are going crazy. My tree peony is blooming, and even my daylily is producing buds for the first time after two years. I planted out my four largest tomato seedlings, and the rest will follow soon.

Mostly I spent the weekend working on my paving project. I spent Monday morning getting rid of big chunks of old maple roots that were blocking my digging effort. I also took out a sprinkler head that would have protruded through the paved area. In the afternoon, I filled in the hole with gravel an crushed rock. (Judging by the paw prints I found the next morning, all the neighborhood stray cats dropped by to check out the enormous new litterbox I had made for them...)

Tuesday I began filling in the space with flagstones. It's quite a task, since I have to locate random shapes that fit well with each other, and then I have to spend time on each one getting it level. This is difficult, since the surface of each stone is uneven. However, I did make significant progress. I'm hoping it won't take too long to finish.
