First Lady Melania Trump is about to make her mark on American history, and it should be glorious with class and grace as usual.
The First Lady is set to renovate the infamous Rose Garden at The White House per a press conference and press release on Monday morning.
In a statement, Mrs. Trump said, “The very act of planting a garden involves hard work and hope in the possibility of a bright future. Preserving the history and beauty of the White House and its grounds is a testament to our nation’s commitment to the care of this landscape and our dedication to American ideals, safeguarding them for our children and their children for generations to come.”
The renovation will be funded by private donations and assisted by the National Park Service. Landscape architecture firms Perry Guillot Inc and Oehme, van Sweden & Associates/OvS created the design plan. The first lady’s team described the plan as a “renewal” of the original blueprint by horticulturist Bunny Mellon, who died in 2014.
“I am confident her choices will be both elegant, restrained and beautiful. This is a first lady that does value style,” Jill Brooke of Flower Power Daily told FOX Business. “The rose is our national flower, and yet the most incredible rose garden is now in Portland, Oregon. Why shouldn’t it be in Washington, D.C?”
