As for many whose work is also something they love (even if not all the time!), landscape architects rarely get a break from the issues facing our outdoor environments, parks and gardens, streets and open spaces in general. LAs arguably can never escape landscape - especially when even our holidays immerse us in it! But perhaps then too we garner extra satisfaction and pleasure from our appreciations. I hope you have all had some lovely time over Easter enjoying the mellowness of Autumn landscapes somewhere - especially our State President who is having some well-deserved leave.
