During the week I saw a photo that momentarily took my breath away. It was Susan Hill’s “Mud Maid” – a stone sculpture covered in moss and vines that looks like a modern version of a reclining buddha. The sculpture is delicately sprawled within the estate of the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Cornall, England. The estate is 400 years old and up until recent times the gardens were neglected, until a hurricane devasted the gardens and inspired locals brought them back to life. http://www.heligan.com/flash_index.html
