Description - All the Presidents Gardens by Marta McDowell

Take a break from partisan politics and discover the majesty of the White House Grounds! The White House Grounds have been an unwitting witness to history a backdrop for soldiers, suffragettes, protestors, and activists. Kings and queens have dined there, bills and treaties have been signed, and presidents have landed and retreated. All the Presidents' Gardens tells the untold history of the White House Grounds, starting with the seed-collecting, plant-obsessed George Washington and ending with Michelle Obama's kitchen garden. Filled with fascinating details about Lincoln's goats, Ike's putting green, Jackie's iconic roses, Amy Carter's tree house, and information on the plants whose favour has come and gone over the years and the gardeners who have been responsible for it all, this is a must-read for anyone interested in the red, white, and green.
