We have been with out phone and internet service for 2 1/2 days. They are building a house next door to us and they dug up our phone lines and cut them some how. But you can see with the Bennie's help we are back up and running.
Most all plants in the garden are up and look good the only one didn't make it, the (Gayfeather) and it was so lovely for the last two years.
This is the (Creme Brulee Coral Bell)it is a award winner.

This is the trailing perennial ( Drummons Pink Creeping Phlox)
it is not trailing very fast but is making a show.We are having cool days in the 50's this week it has been high 70's.
guess that is spring for you.

Glad you got your internet back. Where we are if someone cuts the lines the utility companies fine them a lot. That creme brulee coral bell is beautiful.

I lost my internet for a short time last week, so I know how frustrating that ordeal can be. Good to see you back. I really like that coral bell. It would make a beautiful accent in my garden.

Glad the Bennie could lend a hand..you just wait that creeping phlox will probably take off this year.

Glad spring has arrived in your neck of the woods. Bennie is a handy man to have around. Beautiful phlox and it is just beginning.

Glad you are up and running again. The flowers are lovely. We haven't had many warm days yet mostly they have been in the 40s. Can't wait until we get temps in the 70s. Enjoy the lovely weather and flowers of spring.

Oh dear, what a shame they cut your lines , I'm glad your husband was able to work around that! We have coral bells here too, not the same color though. At risk of sounding dumb, is 'Gayfeather' another name for Coral Bells?

I love that coral bell!! So pretty. Mine is all a dark green. Not so pretty but it survived the cold winter so that's a plus.

I believe the commercials around here say you are to call before you dig - - guess the builders didn't hear about that.
