'Picking vegetables at the Eden Project': Photo by Franie Treetops. The Eden Project is located in Corwall, England.
The Eden Project (Cornish: Edenva) is a visitor attraction in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. Inside the artificial biomes are plants that are collected from all around the world. The project is located in a reclaimed Kaolinite pit, located 2 km (1.2 mi) from the town of St Blazey and 5 kilometres (3 mi) from the larger town of St Austell, Cornwall.
The complex is dominated by two huge enclosures consisting of adjoining domes that house thousands of plant species, and each enclosure emulates a natural biome. The domes consist of hundreds of hexagonal and pentagonal, inflated, plastic cells supported by steel frames. The first dome emulates a tropical environment, and the second a Mediterranean environment. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eden_Project

The Bosco Verticale

The world’s first vertical forest (trademark?) is rising in Milan. The Bosco Verticale, the project’s official title, will be completed later this year, marking a significant step in development of green architecture. The plan consists of two apartment towers festooned with a series of concrete decks, staggered and offset from each other to give the structures their Jenga-like appearance. Once completed, nearly 2.5 acres of “forest” will have been planted in these balconies, helping to absorb dust—-a major problem in Milan—-and C02, while shading and cooling the residents within.

HH: This reminds me of a fairy tale I read over and over as a child. There were two princesses and one had a red rose bush and the other a white rose bush.
This is how I envisioned it.
