White House Garden Tour

MG 0094

Suj and I had the opportunity to attend the fall White House garden tour on a beautiful October afternoon.  The White House property is much larger than I realized.  I felt lucky to enjoy such a bright day surrounded by so much history.  The tour included glimpses of the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, Rose Garden, and South Lawn, and the White House Kitchen Garden. The grounds are lovely and, though many people were touring the area, it felt peaceful and sort of reverent.  Here are a few of my favorite spots:
