La Machine, the French theater company known for its steampunk menagerie has launched a flying greenhouse over the streets of Nantes, France. The flying greenhouse is just the latest of a series of innovative steampunk contraptions that the theater company began making in 1999.

Before the greenhouse, a 50-foot-tall spider on the side of a building turned heads in Liverpool and a 50-ton wooden elephant roamed the streets of Nantes.
