The United States First Lady, Mrs. Melania Trump, announced the completion of the first phase of the newly renovated Rose Garden at the White House in Washington DC, Saturday, under her direction and guidance.
Just the News reported,”First lady Melania Trump on Saturday unveiled the restoration of the White House’s historic Rose Garden restoration, where she’s scheduled to give her speech for next week’s Republican National Convention.”
The White House noted that the predominant rose used in the new design is the “JFK Rose,” a white flower. JFK Roses line the length of the garden, closest to the colonnade on one side, and the slope down to the South Lawn on the other. The middle of the plantings area are filled with other smaller pink roses, and several “Peace” roses, yellowish and light pink in color.
The garden space was renovated for the first time in 60 years and has been organized into symmetrical landscapes, with a newly paved walking area.

Beautiful clean lines and design with a nod back to a Democrat First Lady, in the tradition of Mrs. Jackie Kennedy :

The previous Garden needed an update:
The July 2020 plans suggested new crabapple trees would be planted and some other Kennedy Rose Garden touches would be restored. What we see now is not necessarily what it will be so ????. The new path is supposed to add accessibility. More background https://t.co/S9Wvm3c5Ml pic.twitter.com/C53XZz8CUA

Perhaps the new “Peace Roses” are for a new “Peace Speech”? That would be one way to look at it.
“There are few things more beautiful than a university. A place where people hate ignorance. The most important topic on earth… peace,” said former President John F. Kennedy.
“Peace that makes life on Earth worth living, the kind that makes men and women hope and grow,” he said.
You decide. Watch:
But the left can wonder those things. No, like Bill Kristol, who chimed in showing his snide remarks.
Biden should run on restoring the Kennedy-Regan-Bush-Obama Rose Garden.

The left being unable to contain their pettiness and jealousy designed a meme that was reposted thousands of times, it was meant to hurt Mrs. Trump’s feelings, no doubt but only made the left look small, sad and pathetic.
The Rose Garden wasn’t always filled with roses. In the 19th century, it was a vegetable garden; in 1961, Bunny Mellon redesigned it at President John F. Kennedy’s request. The president desired a formal garden filled with flowers pulled from Thomas Jefferson’s garden notes. pic.twitter.com/5pYJzmZRW9

The just never understood what America is about.
Jackie Kennedy's Rose Garden was beautiful, full of color and life.
Melania Trump's new dull as hell Rose Garden puts the "white" in "white supremacist."

But I think they are about to be reminded. The RNC will be live and televised.
