The Greenhouse Vision

Welcome to my future greenhouse.  It waits for walls.
"It's not too early to imagine," says Virgina.
I need to trim the top of this orange tree.

"Fat chance," she says.  "Be reasonable."
All right.  These shelves are loaded with flowers for Valentine's Day, maybe including a cold-loving Lady's Slipper (Cypripedioideae, thanks to Wikipedia). 
At the West end, beyond these shelves, is a big bin holding a ton of fresh manure.  It's keeping the place warm, at least above freezing.
On the shelves to the left (South), and on the ground, greens are growing for winter-long salads.
Here, hanging from heavy baskets, are ripe red tomatoes.

  1. I can see it all --except maybe the lady slipper. What color is it? I tried clicking on the picture.
