Planet Green has a story on five of the world's most beautiful gardens. The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Cornwall, UK would be first on my list. I want to recreate a "Mud Maiden" next to the spring on the farm.
"The magnificent Heligan Gardens are designed in what is known as the "gardenesque" style, which means that different parts of the garden have entirely different moods and focuses. The gardens include several very old rhododendrons and camellias, an Italian-style garden, a large vegetable garden, Europe's only productive pineapple pit, and "The Jungle,"which is filled with sub-tropical tree ferns. The gardens are now open to the public, and the "Mud Maiden," above, has become one of the garden's most beloved features."
