Super bloom takes off at LAX, but you have to be on a plane to see it - Los Angeles Times
At eye level, the blooms are patchy in places and dense in others. “On a flight to or from Seattle, 95% of them are on the north complex,” Buchanan said. Fliers arriving or leaving on north complex runways 24L and 24R should look down to enjoy the show. (There’s no public access to the fields between active airport runways.)... Sep 10, 2018
Pathhead Flower Show
The vegetables, fruit and flowers were judged by George Harrison and Ian Gillan, with mother and daughter team of Rena Donaldson and Gillian Buchanan tasked with the daunting prospect of dealing with cookery, handicrafts, decorative and children's' entries.With an association with ‘The Horti' dating back around 50 years Fiona Dalrymple was introduced. After commenting on how difficult the weather had been between rain, cold and a lengthy dry spell, she added that the wonders of nature had allowed so many growers to recover and show off some splendid produce. Following some words of encouragement urging younger people to come forward and be involved she presented the winners with their awards and trophies. Jim Williams then thanked her and presented her with a bouquet of flowers.RESULTSConfined ClassesCut flowers1 vase annuals: Billy Knox, Sandra Liddle, Macauley Crichton1 vase hardy herbaceous: Liz Barr, Margaret Winthrop3 dahlias: Billy Knox, Tony Forrest, Sandra Liddle1 pot lobelia: Billy Knox1 large dahlia: Tony Forrest1 gladiolus spike: Sana Forrest, Margaret Winthrop, Billy Knox5 French marigolds: Davy Crichton, Billy Knox1 vase mixed flowers: Fiona Meikle, Nicola Faux, Sandra Liddle1 vase spray chrysanthemums: Margaret Winthrop1 vase asters, 5 blooms: Davy Crichton, Billy Knox, Margaret Winthrop1 vase sweet peas: Billy Knox, Davy Crichton1 vase floribunda: Billy Knox, Fiona Dalrymple4 rose blooms HT: Billy Knox1 rose bloom HT: Billy Knox, Davy Crichton, Fiona Dalrymple1 vase flowering shrub: Margaret Winthrop, Fiona Dalrymple, Fiona MeikleV...

As May Flowers Bloom, A Closer Look at White House Gardens Past and Present
White House's West Colonnade. A subsequent greenhouse President James Buchanan completed in 1857 became a favorite private escape for the Lincoln family during the Civil War.
The remaining conservatory burned in 1867, after which President Grant added back a larger greenhouse-and a billiard room. President Hayes replaced that billiard room with a palm court, and started displaying tropical plants along the lawn in the summer months.
When President Theodore Roosevelt remodeled the White House in 1902, the conservatory and colonial restoration did not mesh, and it was replaced with a small greenhouse that stood where the Smithsonian American History Museum is today.
The East Garden
The East Garden is also called the First Lady's Garden or the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden. First Lady Ellen Wilson, wife of President Woodrow Wilson, was the first White House occupant to pay much attention to the plot of land on the East Wing of the property. Mrs. Wilson was an educated painter who had studied botany, and she had designed a garden for their New Jersey home when Woodrow Wilson was president of Princeton College.
Amid the women's suffrage movement, Mrs. Wilson hired Beatrix Farrand-the only female founding member of the American Society of Landscape Architects-to design the East Garden. 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... Jul 14, 2017
