e do obsess over water. We either have too much, not enough or it’s misbehaving in the form of a thunderstorm or floodin . Regardless, water is our lifeline and essential to our survival. There is a lot of water to be seen in this issue from H2O in pedestal sinks (page 10) and wash basins (page 82) to a sky-high pool and hot tub (page 22). And what is instrumental in many landscapes? Moving water... whether a water garden (page 44) or water squirting out of a ladybug's mouth to the delight of children (page 86). Our Baths of the Year contest winners once again present a high level of creative excellence (page 32). Design with a twist, tile off the charts, tubs evoking relaxation and a broad use of white make this year's winners quite extraordinary. Get ready to be immersed in water...just in time to battle the August heat. Stay cool....Suzie
