As May Flowers Bloom, A Closer Look at White House Gardens Past and Present
Their August 1913 plan included conifers, boxwoods, annuals, perennials, and a reflecting pool.
Mrs. Wilson passed away in 1914, and her garden remained unplanted for two years. While President John F. Kennedy was in office, the garden was redesigned yet again, later finished during Lyndon B. Johnson’s presidency. It features seasonal flowers and ornamental hedges to this day.
The Rose Garden
President Kennedy was also responsible for an update to the famed Rose Garden outside the Oval Office. He wanted an outdoor space to use for official ceremonies, and Rachel Lambert Mellon signed on to redesign the Rose Garden in August 1961 with the goal of making it both beautiful and functional.
Mellon worked with Irwin M. Williams of the National Park Service, who became the White House’s head gardener for nearly 50 years. Mellon had four months to make the transformation, and in that time Williams transplanted magnolias from the tidal basin to the Rose Garden at her request. He also changed the steps to allow a platform for the President to stand on and see the crowd without seeming elevated above them, and he planted the beds with some of the varieties noted in Thomas Jefferson’s journal.
Today, the Rose Garden is a lawn lined with boxwood hedges, magnolias, and crabapple trees. It can hold up to 1,000 spectators for special events.
Neglected at times, but often reappearing, is the White House Kitchen Garden. President John Adams planted the first vegetable garden in 1797 for the practical matter of feeding guests on a bud... May 24, 2018

Just as your mom might have told you, beauty is only skin deep.
That’s the case with a trio of invasive plants that have recently been identified as problematic in Maine, according to a couple of plant experts here. Yellow iris, ornamental jewelweed and black swallow-wort may be pretty, but they can smother the state’s native flora and provide less-nutritious food for native fauna, according to Tori Jackson, a University of Main...

Atascocita Lake Houston Florist helps clients celebrate special occasions
Smith/Community Impact newspaperAtascocita Lake Houston Florist has evolved in the past three decades, but the shop’s owners said one thing has remained constant over that time: Flowers still bring a smile to anyone’s face.“I remember this 80-year-old man who didn’t say anything once I handed him his flowers. He just had this really big smile on his face [as he]walked away from the door,” shop owner Cristina Swanson said. “That’s why we’re still here.”Swanson’s late mother, Amparo Wong, founded the business in 1980 in Atascocita. The shop would later move to its present location in Humble.Swanson said she initially learned about floral design at 18 under the direction of the late, world-renowned innovator and author M. “Buddy” Benz of Houston, the founder of the Benz School of Floral Design at Texas A&M University in College Station.“We still use everything I learned in that class,” Swanson said. “But in life, we are always learning, so I am always looking for classes to improve my art design, work and techniques.”Bouquets and arrangements are available for delivery for any occasion and flower preference. The flower shop also offers consultations for weddings, funerals, homecomings and proms.“It’s very personalized, and no two [orders) look exactly alike,” Swanson said. “It’s enjoyable to see that young people are so excited about their prom, and they really go all out.”The flower shop is expecting a busy prom and homecoming season, Swanson said.“Last year we did...
