Spring garden tours

This past weekend I took some friends to the White House Spring Garden Tour. It was a perfect spring day -- sunny & breezy. I hadn't been on a garden tour for years, but I have to say this is my favorite tour. The grounds are gorgeous, and I just love the architecture of the South Portico. I didn't take too many photos, but here are a few highlights...

Jen in front of the south fountain... one of my favorite spots.

Corner facade of the White House.

Rose garden as seen through the trees.

Jen at the famous kitchen garden. I wish I had that much space!

And the bee hive.





How here's a tour of MY spring garden...

Lots of color -- I planted all types of tulips and daffodils (close-ups below).




Happy spring!

Your garden is more colorful than the South Lawn. The tulips look awesome!
