That is the most interesting greenhouse design I’ve ever seen. Very unusual shape! I’ve seen the giant lilypads at Longwood Gardens in the suburbs of Philadelphia PA. I wonder if they have the same variety as the one shown here? The ones at Longwood look like you could walk on them, but I’m sure that’s a great way to end up in the water!


In the old days they liked taking pics with people standing on them. But I am pretty sure that they put stuff under these lilies to keep them afloat.
