The note reads: "I came to (Itaru) Sasaki's garden for the first time 15 years ago. You may not remember it. I brought a small child. I heard a lot about the concept of this garden and the roses at the time. I was really looking forward to seeing what happened to this garden from that time. I couldn't come after the disaster, but I suddenly thought about it today and came here again with the 20-year-old son. I will come again when the flowers and vegetation in the garden are overgrown!"

It is the only property outside of Britain that Queen Elizabeth called home. A villa near Malta's capital, Valletta, where the heir to the English throne lived between 1949 and 1951, is about to get a new lease of life as a museum of the Mediterranean island's links with the United Kingdom and the royal family. The arcaded, two-storey property is a shadow of its former self. The rooms are bare, paint is peeling off the walls to reveal old murals beneath, the enclosed garden is overgrown and part of a colonnaded belvedere in it has collapsed. Now that the government of Malta has finally acquired the Villa Guardamangia after years of trying, it hopes to restore it to its former state when it was a charming, if relatively modest home for the future British queen.

A decade after a massive earthquake rocked China's southwestern province of Sichuan, killing almost 70,000 people, the scars have begun to heal. The 7.9 magnitude quake which hit on May 12, 2008 was most devastating around its epicentre in Beichuan. Many of the houses that collapsed remain buried under the earth and are covered by overgrown bushes and weeds. In some of the houses still standing, now part of an open air memorial to the dead, wedding photos hang on the wall. Damaged school classrooms remain a mess, with books on the desks turning black with rot. Signs in Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean and French urge visitors to be careful where they tread to let the dead rest in peace. REUTERS/Jason Lee SEARCH "BEICHUAN ANNIVERSARY" FOR THIS STORY.

The Wider Image: Residents resist demolition
You would never guess from inside Beverley Robinson's tidy flat, with its potted plants, family photos and panoramic view of London, that her building is awaiting demolition. But the corridor outside is eerily quiet and the children's playground downstairs lies empty and overgrown. Most neighbours have left and their old flats are shuttered up to deter squatters. The building is cut off from the street by a fence topped with sharp metal blades and manned by security guards. This is one of the flashpoints in London's housing crisis. Unaffordable rents and long waiting lists for social housing have made it harder and harder for people on low incomes to find homes in London, where average property prices have risen by 90 percent over the past 10 years, far outstripping income growth. Robinson and a few others are resisting a 1.5-billion-pound ($1.9-billion), two-decade scheme to flatten the dilapidated Aylesbury Estate, one of Britain's largest social housing projects, and build thousands of new homes in its place.REUTERS/Dylan Martinez SEARCH "AYLESBURY" FOR THIS STORY.

General view of the ruins of the church at Tahure, near Reims, France, November 3, 2015. Tahure consisted of 185 people in 1914. The church and much of the village sit on a small hill - the Butte de Tahure - another place which became famous during the Great War. The wall foundations of the church were rediscovered in 1980, and these have now been excavated. Remarkably the original altar was found, and the bas-relief on its face is largely intact. Tahure is located inside the Camp de Suippes. During World War One many French villages were destroyed, some never to be reconstructed because they were heavily damaged or because the nearby fields contain unexploded munitions, mines, explosives and artillery shells.

General view of the ruins of the church at Tahure, near Reims, France, November 3, 2015. Tahure consisted of 185 people in 1914. The church and much of the village sit on a small hill - the Butte de Tahure - another place which became famous during the Great War. The wall foundations of the church were rediscovered in 1980, and these have now been excavated. Remarkably the original altar was found, and the bas-relief on its face is largely intact. Tahure is located inside the Camp de Suippes. During World War One many French villages were destroyed, some never to be reconstructed because they were heavily damaged or because the nearby fields contain unexploded munitions, mines, explosives and artillery shells.
