Cactus Garden

"The Aztecs who founded Mexico were told by their wise men to establish their new city where they found an eagle, a snake, and a Cactus: and in this manner they established Mexico City at its present site." 

"The first Cactus plant known in Europe, exhibited in Spain by returning explorers in 1590, cased the Queen to turn pale with fright; but when this plant was shown to contain water saved from the American desert, it was accounted as a great miracle."
