Continuing the posts on White House gardens let us take a look at Jacqueline Kennedy's garden, or, as it is sometimes called, the First Lady's Garden. The garden is located on the north side of the East Colonnade of the White House not too distant from where the First Lady's office is located. The garden is in the style of a traditional 18th century American garden and its restoration was underway when First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy was in residence at the White House and dedicated by First Lady Lady Bird Johnson in 1965 as Jacqueline Kennedy's Garden. Besides the flowers and boxwood shrubs, the garden also produces many herbs used by the White House chefs.
