Pyramidology

Lynda of Lulu's Bay in Cairo was where I first learned about photo memes. She asked bloggers to post a photo of what they saw when they looked out their kitchen windows. That was the first photo challenge I participated in, and it was so much fun...watching others post their kitchen views.
Last week Lynda posted another challenge, she asked us to post a pyramid since she lives in Egypt and that's often the first thing that comes to mind when we think of that country. I said I would go on the hunt for a pyramid...I had no idea how hard it would be to find one!
I saw several rooftops that looked like pyramids, but they were not photos I wanted to post....they were of coffee shops, car dealerships, casinos...I found a cupola on a barn but it just didn't speak to me. Then I remembered this pyramid in the photo above...the only problem was it would be a few days before I would be in the area to snap a photo. I hope I'm not too late to participate in Lynda's meme.
This greenhouse pyramid is in the valley where we have a little get-away cabin. I asked our carpenter if he knew anything about it. He said it belongs to some hippies he knows, they believe that the power of the pyramid makes what they grow in their greenhouse more nutritious. I googled pyramids and pyramidology, there is even a winery in Kelowna B.C. that ages their wine in a pyramid structure because they say it makes for better wines.
Hey, they should grow their grapes in a pyramid, that would make for some super-delicious-nutritious vino...doncha think?
What will they think of next.
