Woodland sculptures: carefully groomed moss art in the Lost Gardens of Heligan (England). Side note: Moss obtains nutrients from the air because they have no true roots. Plants require nothing more than shade, acidic soil, and adequate moisture to flourish.

Pirate's Cove, Polperro, Cornwall. Smuggling prospered in Polperro when it was developed as a port in the 12th c. & reached it's zenith in the late 18th c. when Britain's wars w/ America & France hastened high taxation of imported goods. Local fisherman boosted their income by smuggling spirits, tobacco & other goods from Guernsey. A more organized Coast Guard service was introduced in the 19th c. along w/ stiff penalties, & led to much less smuggling.
