A garden/forest in the sky, anything's possible when you have money I suppose, Peter.
....peter:): all it takes is money and an imagination Frank... i thought it was kind of cool....petersmile
Have to love those roof top gardens. We have thought about it if we run out of yard space. smile
....peter:): i think that you will be OK with the yard space for a while Michael....petersmile
Oh that's perfect!! So good to try to "green up" our cities!
....peter:): it is a nice touch Elizabeth not only that but it faces the harbour on this side....petersmile

Well-heeled tamaracks!
....peter:): they just may be tamaracks Ray... they drop their needles in the fall which would make them more resistant to the high winds up that high over winter....petersmile

Obviously this is a practical proposition but makes you look twice
....peter:): it sure caught my eye Chris... i thought that it was quite nice....petersmile

Such greenery is becoming increasingly common as land get swallowed up for building. I bet the birds like this one.
....peter:): Vancouver has a lot of green space within the city as well as Stanley Park that you have seen... but i think that this is a great rooftop garden....petersmile

Not sure I would be entirely happy about living in the apartment below, still a nice idea.
....peter:): good point Mike... but i'm sure that the garden has a pretty good drainage system....petersmile

J'aimerais bien avoir une grande terrasse arborée comme celle-ci.
....peter:): moi aussi Martine... mais nous sommes très heureux de vivre à côté d'un lac... bise....peter/pierresmile
I hope one is decorated with lights at this time of year.
....peter:): i took this picture in September Mary... gut will all of that money to own that penthouse... he likely has a gardener who would has decorated all of the trees by nowgrin....petersmile
I just couldn't face even going up there, let alone wandering out among those trees!
....peter:): i know that you suffer from vertigo Brian and i can understand it... but you could still get a great photograph of it with a long lens from the ground....petersmile

....peter:): Coucou Maria-Lina!
n'est-il pas un endroit merveilleux pour avoir des arbres dans leur jardin ... les gens peuvent les voir de miles autour... bise et bonne soirée toute douce....peter/pierrewink

a little place for recreation with view on the supermodern city!
....peter:): it's a wonderful place to sit under the trees and watch the ships coming in and out the harbour Philine....petersmile

On the Chelsea Flower Show in London I saw some examples of vertical urban gardening for the future - Alan is right.
....peter:): i think that it's a great idea Philine... if i had to live in a high rise building like that... i would also have a vertical garden... it i could live on the top floor....petersmile
i recall seeing one time in Singapore, how a young tree with its roots in a sack of soil being lifted by a tower crane all the way to the top, Peter. it seems constructors are very capable of doing these little forests.
....peter:): it would be fun to watch a crane lifting a tree to the top of a skyscraper Ayush... i think that it's a great thing to have gardens outside of penthouses... if you have the money to buy the penthouse you should afford a few trees....petersmile

That's happening over here, too - brilliant idea
....peter:): i agree Lisl... it doesn't matter where the trees are... they add oxygen to our world....petersmile
