You might think if you’ve visited one garden, you’ve seen them all, but you’re likely to change your mind after seeing these. This particularly unique garden in Scotland, aptly named the Garden of Cosmic Speculation, looks like it was taken from an Alice in Wonderland scene. Instead of plants and exotic flowers, this hypnotizing landscape is filled with aluminum flower beds, fountains, unsual shapes and other elements that create unique patterns like fractals, black holes and other optical illusions.

 After falling into despair after World War 1, the Lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall, England have since been restored to their original glory, hosting a number of legendary mud sculptures that are covered with greenery, looking as if they are a part of the landscape, including the beautiful Sleeping Mud Maid and the Giant Head, pictured below.

This rather bizarre sculpture garden greets visitors with a sign that reads: “Welcome to Hell.” The garden depicts, in rather gory detail, the type of punishments that might be in store for those that misbehave, including things like impaling, disemboweling and transfiguration.
