Back on the Grid

Hello friends!

My apologies for falling off the grid – between the last week of school and a week of baseball in Cooperstown, NY, it’s been a wee bit busy.  I had every intention of blogging (brought my computer and everything), but it just didn’t happen. 

I have to say, Cooperstown was about as cute as a town can get – it just brims with charm.  I could have wandered the streets for hours at a time just taking in all of the character in this quaint little village.

The bed and breakfasts are as charming as the homes that surround them.  This is the Overlook Bed & Breakfast.


The Cooper Inn is equally charming – love the ivy!


Again with the ivy!


Window boxes abound in this town.  And you know how much I adore window boxes…

Don’t you love the purple against the stone?
I would love to get a peek inside this beautiful gem.

We had a team cookout at one of the homes that a few families were renting.  They had this gorgeous view to enjoy.

But the best part of the week was watching this guy play in some good baseball games.

And the scenery wasn’t too shabby either.

They really decked out this place, with no detail overlooked.  Can you believe 100+ teams from all over the country come here every week for the whole summer to play baseball?


Cooperstown is the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame as well, so we made sure to make a stop there.  Great stuff!

I loved looking at the historical items they had there.  Check out these baseball cards.  Way cool, yes?

Thankfully, my flowers flourished while we were away, thanks to a lot of rain and a dependable friend to keep watch.  Remember my 50 cent geraniums from my nursery scouting?  Yes, that’s them – those hot pink beauties.

So, there you have it.  We’re starting to settle in to a summer routine, and I have a feeling I’m going to have to get up early to enjoy the silence. 🙂

Have a great week!
