Sorry - for bogging up this thread. I'm just a real plant enthusiast  ;D ;D




A living wall - perhaps one day we'll all have indoor oxygen generating natural walls like that

The "wall" will support living plants that process waste water -- a "biofilter" -- and at the same time improve air quality in the building.

It's the remnant of hobbit homes made for the Lord of the Ring movies in near Matamata, New Zealand. After filming was over they kept them as they've turned into a tourist attraction. Check out Bag end - Tolkiengatway if you want to know more.

Rather nice concept of living - very organic  ;D



An alternative - turf roofing






1 Vegetation layer - (plants)
2 Lightweight soil 50-100mm in depth
3 Filter mat
4 Drainage layer
5 Root barrier
6 Waterproof membrane

Desert rose

For the life of me I can't find the latin name.  :(

Quite an interesting plant in that it can dry up completely, gets uprooted during the many sand storms and can travel (rolling along with the wind) for hundreds if not thousands of miles to take up roots once more again when conditions are right.
Some people have also speculated that this might have been the original 'crown of thorns'

This is a picture of a Gerber Daisy that I took when I was at work. Since I see plants every day, sometimes I can take them for granted...but Gerber's have always been able to make me smile.  :)
