The Rise . Salon De Souffle

  Recently Hedda Dowd  (owner of  The Rise located at 5360 W.Lover's Lane
Dallas, Tex. ) came to my shop to purchase a Bonsai. After picking out a pot
she chose a zelkova tree & I fixed it up real nice. "You know where this tree is
going don't you?" I said no,I don't. She said I'm giving this to Bush. I said the
only Bush I know of is ex-president Bush. That's right I'm giving this to George
& Laura to commemorate  the birth of their granddaughter.
  I was stunned an ex-president & his wife were getting one of my trees !!
I didn't even get a picture of it. On top of that she also picked out one of 
my maples for her business, now when you enter her Bistro the first thing you 
see is my (whoops HER) tree!!!!     

   The Rise is a four star restaurant with a laid back atmosphere where all the in 
people go for brunch it opens at 11:00 a.m. Their souffles are to die for!!!! My
wife & I went to deliver the maple & we stayed to eat . It was so Delicious!!!
A couple weeks later we took my daughter Linda to celebrate her birthday 
                           My wife & daughter

              My daughter & me and our souffles I'm going to work my       
 way thru their list of souffles

                         I'm behind on my trimming,shaping, & styling on my
Japanese maples. 

                                  That's just on my Japanese maples not to mention
          my Trident maples

                               This is my Brazilian Rain tree I've been cutting on it

                                   These are cuttings I've made so far from the
      Brazilian rain tree

                                      This is Eric who came by to visit

                                   This is yours truly,  Eric said if I have to take a 
                       picture you do too !!

                                         That's all for now      WAX ON ........WAX OFF

                                             After changing it from the nursery pot into
                                          a Styrofoam box it was raffeled off --the
                                          winner was Steve Flynn!!!

                                            they bought a tray of maples
