Green Roofs

Minutes wasted in 2014 talking about the weather: 2,946*.
Minutes wasted in 2014 talking about how boring it is to talk about the weather: 753*. (But, really, when will this godawful winter end? Okay: 754 minutes.)

I needed something vibrant and pretty to look at so I went down a rabbit hole of green roofs. Most of these exist in Scandinavia (see? harsh winters call for putting a garden on your house) and, I’ll admit, tap into a softcore version of industrial ruin porn. Makes you wonder why anyone would choose asphalt shingles over fuzzy mosses…
