Ceiba speciosa (formerly Chorisia speciosa, silk floss tree, toborochi tree, drunken tree) belongs to same family as baobab and kapok and is native to tropical and subtropical forests of South America. Its trunk is bottle-shaped, generally bulging in its lower third, measuring up to 2 meters in girth. The tree is also well known for the large spikes protecting the trunk and the limbs.

Toborochi tree! Nature Bolivia Photography Collection (10 Pictures). The toborochi tree (Ceiba speciosa) looks pregnant! In Bolivia, legends say a beautiful goddess hid inside the tree to give birth so the forces of evil wouldn't find her and kill her and her baby. She comes out only in the form of the tree's beautiful pink flowers which attract her mate, the hummingbird god.

Toborochi tree - amazing! Nature Photography Collection (10 Pictures) Tree is in Bolivia
Toborochi Tree- grows in Bolivia (maybe other places)
What can I say? I love almost all trees, but especially unusual fat trees like this Toborochi Tree from Bolivia. I also love the Baobab trees of Madagascar. I may like to eat black walnuts, but I don't want the tree anywhere near my garden, with its killer juglone acid (most disliked by apple trees, tomatoes and white birch trees...all of which I like.)
Apparently oranges burn like candles. No messy wax, and no wick required. Who knew? I bet these smell amazing!

After I read about this on another site, it is not a good idea. The fragrance is only from the burning oil and not from the orange. This picture doesn't show the part where you fill the orange with vegetable or olive oil. Apparently oranges burn like candles. No messy wax, and no wick required. Definitely trying this.
Add olive oil and presto! An orange candle! Apparently oranges burn like candles. No messy wax, and no wick required. Definitely trying this.

Most part of Holland is under sea level and most houses constantly face the problem of flooding. The Citadel residential concept seems like the perfect solution to this problem. This concept embraces this water problem instead of struggling with it. It is a residential floating complex, which is a part of the “New Water” complex.

The Netherlands. Sea Tree, a Citadel, first floating apartmentcomplex.
The Citadel For centuries, the Dutch reclaimed land from the sea to build dwellings in its low-lying terrain. Now, the architectural firm Waterstudio has decided to embrace water rather than fight it, and has designed the world's first floating apartment complex - The Citadel. It is due to be completed in December, and will have 60 luxury apartments with large terraces and parking spaces.
World's First Floating Apartment Complex to Begin Construction in 2014: Netherlands-based firm Waterstudio just announced plans to construct the world’s first floating apartment complex in 2014. The Citadel will offer 60 luxury apartments made from 180 modular units that will be arranged around a central courtyard and topped with green roofs.

The Citadel Housing Complex, Netherlands | This floating complex of apartments will use 25% less energy than its land-based comparables, additionally helping to stop the fight against the incoming water that is constantly pumped out by Dutch polders. The Citadel will be the first of its kind, including 60 luxury units that include parking for both cars on the inside and docks for boats on the outside. |

Living Roofs: Chicago City Hall
Rooftops Gardens, Cities Hall, Chicago Rooftops, Green Rooftops, Greenroof, Hall Green, Chicago Cities, Roof Gardens, Green Living
Chicago City Hall green roof. Every city building should be covered in green- green roofs and decks and vertical gardens. Much better building insulation which means lower heating/cooling costs. MUCH better air quality in the city- who knows how that would improve peoples immune systems and cut healthcare costs, maybe more in the long term. Much better quality of water and less water runoff load on the sewer systems. Roof gardens could/should equal some fresh produce which lowers food costs. Better for insects and birds and bees, etc. Better for nature and the ecosystem!
Heat Island effect reduced with rooftop #gardens.
Green Rooftops! Cool!

Take this deceptively simple idea from Italian designer Peter Bottazzi and Denish Bonapace that turns used up and useless old furniture into artfully rendered homes for plants. Called Da Morto A Orto, or from redundant to abundant, Bottazzi and Bonapace took various pieces of furniture and combined them into hybrids
