Dead Batteries....

Why is it that my camera batteries always die at the most inopportune time?

I managed to snap a few of the topiaries that I made for the featured artist show at Thirstade.

Thirstade Fresh Cafe is found in West Reading, PA on the main street going through town. They have the best coffee ever! and hot cocoa, smoothies, yummy wraps and sandwiches.

Mark, the owner, now features a different artist every month to support the local arts. He kindly has allowed me to feature my topiaries for the month of October.

You can see the yellow rose topiaries in the front window (if you look very carefully, there is also a square dark boxwood topiary in the other window)

These are several of the topiaries on small shelves on the wall. Since my batteries died, I wasn't able to capture my big topiaries in different parts of the store.

Since it is an "artist" show, we decided to name the topiaries.

"Blueberry Tea"

"No Smoothie for Me"

(get it? it's a store that sells smoothies...?)

(Other names are "Very Vine" "Rosey" "Feathers" "Mr. Who" "Fall Fiesta" but they didn't make it into the pictures, batteries, sigh...)

Oh, and the pink trees. Yes, they will soon be replaced by some kind of fun topiary or branch sculpture designed by me! They are in front of the cutest sweet shoppe that bakes cupcakes and cookies.
