A picture taken on May 3, 2014, (released June 12), shows people visiting “The Gateway to Hell,” a huge burning gas crater in the heart of Turkmenistan’s Karakum desert. The fiery pit was the result of a simple miscalculation by Soviet scientists in 1971 after their boring equipment suddenly drilled through into an underground cavern and a deep sinkhole formed. Fearing that the crater would emit poisonous gases, the scientists took the decision to set it alight, thinking that the gas would burn out quickly and this would cause the flames to go out. But the flames have not gone out in more than 40 years.

THE SLEEPING GODDESSLocated on Woodland Walk, in the Lost Gardens of Heligan, is an amazing sculpture of a sleeping goddess entitled ‘Mud Maid’. The incredible larger-than-life sculpture even has grass and moss growing atop it.Heligan was a sprawling thousand-acre estate in the UK (Pentewan, St. Austell, Cornwall to be exact), and was originally bought by the Tremaynes in the 16th century. After decades of neglect in the 1900s it became decayed and overgrown until an ambitious restoration project in 1996 brought the gardens back to life. They are now one of the most popular botanical gardens in the UK.The restoration, which was the subject of a six part Channel 4 television series in 1996, proved to be an outstanding success, not only revitalising the gardens but also the local economy around Heligan by providing employment. The gardens are now leased by a company owned by their restorers, who continue to cultivate them and operate them as a visitor attraction.

I’ve seen photos of this, but never knew where it was. It’s a beautiful sculpture

Found this ‘History of Music’ in the library at work - printed in London in 1861. It’s not in great condition but it still feels like I’ve found treasure ♫
