Default Concrete Repair

I have a concrete-pebble driveway that has been repaired. The area
that was cut with a diamond saw needs a bit of help. A few of the
pebbles have popped out along the cut surface and I want to fill those
holes with a cement-like mixture. My problem has been that all the
materials I have tried lack strength and adhesion. Please see attached
photos. Any suggestion as to how I can mix up some "cement" to repair
the voids.

From the pictures I couldn't see an area that needed repair.

When I repair cement like that I use Bondo but you'll probably find a color
variance.

I usually use Bondo Household putty but the Epoxy may give you the strength
you need:

We used some sanded latex stucco patching compound to make repairs to
conc. block on our condo.
It is outdoors but protected from elements. You might be able to get
away with using that. Sweep up
some of the residue from cutting the concrete and sprinkle on the
surface to color it?

Some of the pebbled walks and drives are made from regular concrete and then
the pebbles are glued on using an epoxy based product. You might try
finding some pebbles than fit the voids and using such a product to stick
them into place.

I agree with the other poster that I did not see anything I would spend the
effort to repair if all you have bad is in the pictures.

Mix up some mortar, add pebbles, push into crack. After the mortar sets up
a bit, use a stiff brush and scrub as needed to remove some mortar around
surface pebbles then sponge residual mortar off pebbles with a damp sponge.

I have edited the photos to show the voids I want to fill. See arrow.
Would be easier to see in 3D.
