royal parking

Multi-storey car park in Kungens kurva ("King's Curve"). The name has its story: On 28 September 1946, king Gustav V and friends were on their way home from a hunt at the Tullgarn Palace south of Stockholm. It is rumoured that the king pushed the driver to 'step on it', eventually the Cadillac skidded off the road and ended up in a ditch. The king was uninjured and the driver was saluted for his resourcefulness.

what a name and what a story. I am glad you are enjoying the cactus on my site. And yes, cactus actually need water. I water them about once a week. some cactus in my yard can go two to three weeks without water. thanks for your comments!
