Dee and Carol discuss roses in the updated White House rose garden and why the garden needed to be updated, plus a little bit about Bunny Mellon, and for vegetable gardeners, a shoutout to kalettes and Ron Finley. How's that for covering a lot of ground?
Newly planted Roses in the White House gardens include:
'John F. Kennedy'
‘Pope John Paul II’
A cool video about Peace on YouTube.
Carol's post on zinnias, the best she's ever grown.
In the veggie garden, seeds for kalettes at John Scheepers Kitchen Garden Seeds.
