Wow! Your client has a good eye and imagination. With a "title" like that a great excuse to pot up "jungle" inspired tree to continue the theme.

Makes me smile. Good tree for the ‘pot’ ... not something that I would jump at but I can appreciate many would. Actually, I can imagine a Harry Potter book with a gnarly forest growing from it. I reckon Nigel Saunders would appreciate the different thinking displayed here. :-)
