  1. What about a flat roof. I dreamt was on roof of my building with my landlords husband. There was an old claw foot bathtub filled with dirt and scruffy plants as well as an old wooden rectangular garden box. I was telling the husband I would create a rooftop garden and plant flowers in the tub and vegetables in the box. I can’t find any descriptions to help me explain this dream.
