My Northampton shopping and flower appreciation buddies.
This was my favorite flower this year. I love that peachy coral shade and the ruffles. I would like to recreate this in tissue or crepe paper but Mother Nature can't be beat!
There is a lovely little indoor shopping market with lots of wonderful independent shops in Northampton's thriving downtown. This is on the bottom floor and is one of my favorites. It's filled with quirky stuff. Had a great whoopie pie at the Queen Bee Cupcakery also. There motto is "get buzzed" at the Cupcakery.
We would have spent more time downtown if it hadn't been for those pesky parking meters! I don't think the city should have them. It doesn't encourage leisurely shopping. All in all a great day.
