Welcome to the Greenhouse aboard the H.M.Z peregrination

Welcome to the Greenhouse! Obviously Mr. Earl {the cook} isn't doing that great of a job keeping the weeds out, I see Onagraceae, Bellis perennis, and some Myosotis but none of my favorite flower the Taraxacum! It was wiped out by this evil invader known only as,

Moonlight Fuchsia

{dramatic music}

It is only known as that because I don't know the real name. Even after hours of "goggling" or something that sounds like that. It involves the computer. Any way if there is a botanist in the crowd {or even a gardener!} could you please come forward? I would like to know the scientific name for this plant, If you could tell me how to kill it too, that would be very helpful, thank you. You may wonder where I could find the space aboard my Zeppelin for a greenhouse, or why I would even need one! But I have a good answer, Sometimes we go over the ocean, or over the polar cap, and don't have enough space for all the food it would take to feed the crew for the months of travel. So I had a greenhouse put in at the apex of the outer shell to grow food such as fruits and vegetables. At least, that was the idea. It didn't really work out as we found out that potatoes can't grow at 30.000 feet. So we decided that we could just go around the polar cap. Although potatoes won't grow, flowers will! they act as our air filtarion system for when we are up above the clouds, where the air is thin. They are very pretty too.
Any way, to get back to the subject, I would like to show you some pictures of my greenhouse.

Hanging ivy plants, over on the right, and over on the left you can see our attempts at vegetables. {above}

and some pink flower we picked up in Africa.
I am sorry I do not know the names of these flowers, most of the time we pick them from the wild, from fields and such, where they grow free. But if you know the names, please leave a comment below. Thanks, I appeciate it.

And on that note I bid you
Good Day, and Best Regards.
