The White House Garden Tour is the first "DC thing" I have done since moving to the area this August. The tour was like a garden party without the lawn games. The beautifully green and lush lawn areas were off limits. Lawns are so tempting to young children! This population would be much happier at the White House Easter Egg Roll which is literally held on the South Lawn.
The gardens on the tour were the Commemorative Plantings on the South Lawn, the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, the Rose Garden, and the White House Kitchen Garden. The latter is curiously far away from the house. The Children's Garden established by Lady Bird Johnson in 1969 was not accessible.
The entry process was straightforward and the line moved quickly. Here is what I saw. Enjoy!
