Amusant ce massif en premier plan, on pourrait presque penser à une voiture recouverte de végétation.
Bonne journée Elaine

yeS quiTe. Our daughter in law parked her car at the top of our drive a few years ago. The next thing I noticed was a policeman in the garden. The car had rolled down through the garden, the neighbours fence and down a terrace to the back of their house. There was amazingly very little damage until the car was lifted out by crane. It was jammed so firmly than the bodywork was ripped to pieces and it had to be written off. Leave it in gear is the lesson learned :)

@grouser: That sounds like something right out of a movie! What a nightmare! I can't imagine! This road was very steep and I just kept thinking that this was a bad idea the way the car was parked. If it did roll backwards down the hill, it would have ended up in the Potomac River which was on the opposite side of the road.

I like the look of this neighbourhood, and I'm sure the driver knows what he/she is doing ... ;-)

The threat of rolling down the hill makes a very good silly Tuesday picture.

Wow, that's steep! A good hill for sledding in winter though.

17 Apr 2018 6:00pm

@Steve Rice: It would be but the Potomac River is right across the road!
