the oval office (the west wing of the white house)
i wouldn't mind a yard with a swing set like this in it
the white house vegetable garden. 2/3 of the produce is used at the white house and 1/3 of it is donated to a local soup kitchen. i love that.
what a perfect day for a garden tour.
twice a year in april and october, the white house opens up its gardens to the public for a self-guided tour of all the pretty trees, plants and the grounds.
i am really happy dave and linda (ben's dad and mom) were able to get 6 tickets so me, ben, brandon, celeste and dave and linda could all go to this lovely event!
it was fun to see the trees that had been planted on the white house grounds--- it seemed like most were planted by president george w. bush and president bill clinton. kind of funny.
i especially loved seeing the vegetable garden--- and i learned that there are people who work in the garden... and i wonder how i too could get a job like this. wouldn't that be great?
but really, i just want a garden of my own :)
