Today was the spring garden tour at the White House, which is apparently an annual event, though I heard of it for the first time yesterday. After living here for a dozen years, I am apparently not at all plugged into the touristy goings on. I ended up with a ticket via my friends Megan and Jenny, who have a friend/former colleague now working in the groundskeeper’s office at the White House. (Right… Who knew the White House has a groundskeeper’s office?) It was a bit chilly and breezy out, but overall not a bad day to be outside, admiring plants and taking in views I hadn’t seen before.
