Check out my pics from the White House Garden Tour from yesterday. It was a little nippy and cloudy outside, but we had a fantastic time on the grounds of the White House. There was a military band playing (not sure which branch) and plenty of beautiful flowers and scenery.
The White House Garden Tours have been a tradition since 1972 when Pat Nixon first opened the White House gardens to the public. Visitors are invited to view the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, Rose Garden, Children’s Garden and South Lawn of the White House. A new addition to the tour was First Lady Obama’s Kitchen Garden. The garden was named in honor of Thomas Jefferson. The vegetables were grown from heirloom seeds used by Jefferson at his estate, Monticello. I was quite impressed. You might see ThatKellieGirl in some overalls in the future. 🙂
