A few days ago, we got our April issue back from the printer. I am especially excited about our Fresh story on Living Walls. Senior editor Megan Padilla found examples of great new work of this nature around the country by Flora Grubb (San Francisco), Jane Hansen (Portland), Michael Madarash (New York) and Winston Flowers (Boston--and they are now doing landscape design, not just floral design). If that isn't enough to keep us all on our toes, today's first-thing-in-the-morning e-mail check revealed a living wall by a designer I haven't met before, Amelia Lima, who is originally from Brazil but now living in La Jolla, CA. Landscape architect Raymond Jungles, who is heavily influenced by Brazilian landscapes, sent me this photo of one of Lima's projects. Do you love it as much as I do?
