Fantastic use of landscaping to suggest a broader picture of nature than might otherwise be immediately available – the gardens at Kannon-in: Tottori, Japan: photo by Ojisanjake.
Tatton, Cheschire - Love the layers, some round sculpted elements, some fluffy...appearance of horizontal lines created by the tree branches.
A stone lantern. It'd be cool if I could actually get them to light up at night! It'd be even cooler if I had one.

DIY Tiki Torch Anchors: Decking your yard with tiki torches is an inexpensive, festive way to bring island style home -- and to light up the night without electricity. Use them to line a path or surround a patio. If the ground is paved or rocky, you may not be able to find places to poke the torches into the soil. Instead, anchor them in gravel-filled, galvanized-steel flower buckets, and have yourself a tropical night.
