    My favorite time of year in our rose garden is early spring. All the rose bushes have leafed out and buds are forming. The garden is alive with bees and birds. Daffodils, tulips, azaleas, lilacs, rhododendrons, manzanita and ceanothus are in bloom, with fruit trees, California poppies, irises, lilies and gladiolas just starting to develop. After pruning our roses and fruit trees in January and early February, we spent most of the rest of February and March reworking the garden areas of our backyard to make it more drought tolerant and, at the same time, planted cover crop plants to help enrich our soil. By feeding the soil, we expect to see an overall improvement in the health of our plants and reduce or eliminate the use of chemicals in our gardening efforts. We started the rework by sowing field peas in the grass areas and raised beds to add nitrogen to the soil. Then we weeded around the rose bushes and companion plants, picked up any diseased leaf litter and added Epsom salt to each rose plant. Related Articles...
    How Derrick Rose is blooming in the Garden of Knicks Alder Almo October 4, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit New York Knicks backup point guard Derrick Rose turned 33 Monday, and he’s blooming in a different way in the Garden that has looked like a basketball paradise for most of last season. After a tumultuous first stint with the Knicks in 2016, Rose’s game withered, and he was already out of the league until Tom Thibodeau came rushing to resurrect his career in Minnesota in 2018. Thibodeau watered and nurtured his game in a different role. Rose bloomed as a second unit leader of a young Timberwolves team. Thibodeau brought him in the middle of last season to New York to reprise that role and instantly catapulted the Knicks’ bench into the league’s upper echelon. But his return to New York was initially met with some skepticism as the city has fallen in love with last year’s rookie Immanuel Quickley’s floaters and long bombs. “People...
    (CNN)Since leaving Washington last January, there have been only a handful of things that have drawn former first lady Melania Trump out of her social media silence: holidays, the anniversary of Be Best, thanks for birthday wishes.But nothing has caught her attention, or her ire, like the criticism last week of the White House Rose Garden by noted historian and author Michael Beschloss.Beschloss on August 7 tweeted his ongoing disgust at what he dubbed the "evisceration" by Trump of the most iconic garden in America. As with most things touched by the Trumps, the Rose Garden has become a political lightning rod. Its massive 2020 renovation, a project overseen by the former first lady, was polarizing to a degree normally reserved for complex policy matters, not posies and sod.The reconstruction meant removing almost all of the garden's plants and trees and flowers, digging up an antiquated irrigation system and installing a new one, creating a more cohesive audio/visual apparatus, laying pavers for walkways and replanting just about every shrub and seedling from scratch. At the unveiling, one year ago this...
    Nigerian multi-millionaire Michael Boulos proposed to Tiffany Trump in the Rose Garden at the White House before presenting her with a massive diamond ring, sources told Page Six. Boulos, 23, popped the question to Tiffany, 28, after the couple flew in from Miami, where they had been spotted soaking up the winter sun over the past few weeks. It’s unclear whether Boulos asked President Trump for his permission, but a source said that the fact they were at the White House for the proposal means it’s “highly likely” he did. A White House source told Page Six: “The family is delighted.” Tiffanys’ mom — and the President’s second wife — Marla Maples posted her own message of congratulations to the couple on Instagram on Tuesday. She wrote: “Celebrating God’s endless blessing of love…May God’s blessings & love always light your path. Love you so much, mom.” As we reported, the couple have been looking at property in Miami after spending time at the swanky Setai in South Beach. They will join the rest of the Trump clan, who have snapped up homes in Florida....
    After Amy Coney Barrett's almost assured confirmation Monday evening, Justice Clarence Thomas is on the docket to swear in the 7th Circuit appellate judge to the Supreme Court at a White House ceremony. 'Justice Clarence Thomas will administer the official Constitutional Oath to Judge Amy Coney Barrett at the White House tonight,' a senior White House official told The New York Times. The vote on Barrett's nomination is set to take place some time after 7:00 p.m. Monday evening and the White House is prepared to hold a 'large' celebration in the Rose Garden honoring the momentous occasion just one week before Election Day. Although a source told Politico that the guest list for the South Lawn event is not small, Trump suggested it was smaller than it was being made out. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows also sought to assure reporters Monday that the White House ceremony would include safety precautions. 'We're doing tonight the best we can to encourage as much social distancing as possible,' he said. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas will swear...
    Chris Christie, 58, has entered his second week in hospital after testing positive for COVID-19 following his attendance at the White House Rose Garden 'superspreader' event. The former New Jersey governor, who helped Donald Trump prepare for his first presidential debate days before they both tested positive, has now been in hospital for seven days after checking himself in last Saturday 'out of an abundance of caution'.  Christie said he has been treated with anti-viral treatment remdesivir - the same experimental drug used to treat the president during his stint in hospital last week.  His condition remains unclear with conflicting reports surfacing and the governor himself keeping quiet about his health despite promising to 'keep the necessary people informed'. At least 34 people in Donald Trump's inner orbit have now tested positive for the virus according to a leaked memo, with at least nine cases among people who attended the 'superspreader' event at the White House on September 26 where the president officially announced Amy Coney Barrett as his Supreme Court pick.  Chris Christie, 58, has entered his second...
    BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Mayor Marty Walsh called the White House’s Rose Garden event for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett “probably the biggest breach of national security in the history of our country.” On September 26, President Trump held an outdoor ceremony at the Rose Garden, which was attended by about 200 people — many of whom were not wearing masks or following social distancing guidelines. There are also photos of some of the attendees inside the White House on Saturday. “If you gather at a party of 25 people or more, there’s a chance that somebody is a carrier COVID, and all of a sudden now we have a super spreader event,” Walsh said. “We saw this at the White House last week. We saw about 100 people sitting on, I think it was the South Lawn or the Rose Garden. Nobody was wearing a mask. Nobody was physical or social distancing. Everyone was hugging, shaking hands, laughing.” President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump and other top White House officials later tested positive for coronavirus. “In that one...
    President Trump announced early Friday that he and first lady Melania Trump had tested positive for COVID-19 -- coming on the back of a busy week of travel and events, just weeks away from Election Day. Trump's diagnosis came hours after it was announced that senior adviser Hope Hicks had tested positive for the virus on Thursday. PRESIDENT TRUMP, FIRST LADY TEST POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS, SET TO QUARANTINE AT WHITE HOUSE The incubation period for a positive COVID-19 test is believed to be between five and seven days — raising immediate questions about who else could have been infected and how Trump could have been infected in the first place. Last Thursday, Trump held a “Great American Comeback” rally in Jacksonville, Fla. On Friday, he held a rally in Newport News, Va. On Saturday, he was at the White House, making a major announcement in the Rose Garden that he will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett (who has since tested negative for the virus). That event included press and guests at the event. He later held a rally in Harrisburg, Penn. On Sunday...
    First lady Melania Trump donned an Alexander McQueen military-style jacket when she made her closing case for husband Donald Trump at the second night of the Republican National Convention on Tuesday. The 50-year-old cut a stylish figure in the $1,500 (£1, 140) designer jacket, which she paired with a pencil skirt as she spoke from the Rose Garden at the White House.  And she isn't the only famous face to have sported the khaki number - as model Kaia Gerber previously wore the garment in October 2019 as she headed to the Vogue: Forces Of Fashion event in New York City. Instead, she opted to give her ensemble an edgier look with a short skirt and black leather boots.  First lady Melania Trump (pictured), 50, donned an Alexander McQueen military-style jacket at the second night of the Republican National Convention The 50-year-old cut a stylish figure as she addressed the Republican National Convention from the Rose Garden at the White House  Melania wore her light brunette tresses down as she accentuated her evergreen looks with complementary make-up.

    Liberals attacked Melania Trump over the weekend after the first lady unveiled renovations to the Rose Garden at the White House. What is the background? According to CNN, the Rose Garden has been under construction since last month to undergo horticultural and technological updates. From CNN: The restoration resembles the original design and formation of the Rose Garden, established by President John F. Kennedy, and implemented in 1962 by horticulturist and philanthropist Rachel "Bunny" Mellon. The garden had not undergone a comprehensive refresh since then. One of the first lady's stated goals for the renovation was to "fulfill the dynamic needs of the modern presidency," so part of the updated design includes modern features for audio and visual capabilities, as well as lighting and access for television cameras. On Saturday, Melania unveiled the renovated garden. Excited to honor history & celebrate the future in our beautiful @WhiteHouse Rose Garden this evening.

    Madison Summers July 27, 2020 0 Comments U.S. First Lady Melania Trump plans to do a “significant renewal” of the Rose Garden at the White House this summer, to improve the iconic location. “The very act of planting a garden involves hard work and hope in the possibility of a bright future,” Trump said in a statement, along with the press release. The plan is to “provide a renewal” of the original design, which is the “guiding blueprint” from 1962 established during the Kennedy administration. “The refreshment of the Rose Garden will return it to its original ‘62 footprint and help ensure it will thrive with improved infrastructure, better drainage, and a healthier environment for plantings that reduce the risk of leaf blight,” the press release reads. During the restoration, the first lady plans to include enhancements such as “improved Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility, utilities, and support for audiovisual and broadcasting needs.”Official White House Photo by Tia Dufour/The White House/FlickrThe first lady said of the plan for the renovations, “Preserving the history and beauty of the White House...
    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti warned the city was 'on the brink' of another stay-at-home order and admitted that the economy resumed too quickly as cases continue to spike in the coronavirus hot spot. In the same interview on CNN's State of the Union, Garcetti blasted President Trump for a 'lack of national leadership' and giving 'rants in the Rose Garden' instead of enacting a feasible coronavirus response.  'I think we're on the brink of that,' Garcetti said about a potential second city lockodown.  'I think a lot of people don’t understand, mayors often have no control what opens up and doesn’t — that’s either at a state or county level. And I do agree, that those things happened too quickly.'

    Tuesday on CNN’s “Situation Room,” network White House correspondent Jim Acosta declared President Donald Trump gave giving a “rabbling, unhinged,” campaign rally-like speech in the Rose Garden today. Acosta said, “I’ve never seen a president turn the Rose Garden into a campaign rally the way President Trump did in the last — more than an hour. This is obviously the campaign rally he wanted to have in New Hampshire that his campaign wasn’t able to have last weekend. He instead decided to have it here in the rose garden. You can just go through line by line, section by section of what the president had to say here in almost the same fashion we do with the campaign rallies to debunk, you know, the myths, the lies, the stretching of the truth and so on. That is what took place here in the Rose Garden.” He continued, “Starting on China, the president went after China repeatedly throughout this what he called a news conference. It was barely a news conference. You know, the president sounded at times like he was...
    Fox News covered the entirety of President Donald Trump’s lengthy Rose Garden press conference Monday, and once it wrapped Bret Baier remarked upon how notable it was that most of the White House event was campaign rhetoric. The president briefly announced U.S. action against China in response to the national security law on Hong Kong before going on a rather long campaign-event-style speech attacking Joe Biden and various other political foes. Baier reviewed the speech for viewers and said, “The president wrapping up what turned out to be a long list of differences with Biden. What the president called a list of Democrat agenda items. He spoke for 52 mites before taking a question.” “Presidents in the past by tradition have stayed away from overt campaign rhetoric from the Rose Garden or the White House, but it is the president’s discretion,” Baier continued. But he added, “It is worth nothing, however, to be fair, that had President Obama made this kind of speech from the Rose Garden, Republicans on Capitol hill would likely have been up in arms.” You...
    President Donald Trump is holding a press conference in the White House Rose Garden on Tuesday afternoon. According to multiple reports, the press conference will focus largely on China. But if he takes questions, Trump will undoubtedly be confronted about a number of remarks he made in a CBS interview – of which excerpts have just been released. Notably, the president scolded CBS’ Catherine Herridge for asking what he deemed to be a “terrible question” when she quizzed Trump as to why “African-Americans still dying at the hands of law enforcement in this country?” “So are white people,” Trump replied. “So are white people. What a terrible question to ask. So are white people. More white people, by the way. More white people.” The news conference is slated to begin at 5:00 p.m. ET. Watch above, via the White House.
