Sunday Territorian - - WORLD -

WASH­ING­TON: First lady Me­la­nia Trump has ded­i­cated a new gar­den for pa­tients at one of Amer­ica’s lead­ing chil­dren’s hos­pi­tals.

Pa­tients will be able to feel the sun, breathe fresh air and see the Wash­ing­ton Mon­u­ment from the new rooftop gar­den at Chil­dren’s Na­tional Med­i­cal Cen­ter.

Mrs Trump qui­etly vis­ited the gar­den in March, and she and sev­eral chil­dren planted seeds for morn­ing glo­ries, said to be a sym­bol of love and re­newal.

In re­marks be­fore help­ing cut a blue rib­bon to ded­i­cate the gar­den, Mrs Trump said she looked for­ward to re­turn­ing af­ter ev­ery­thing they planted was in full bloom.

The gar­den is ded­i­cated to all of Amer­ica’s first ladies. Biogra­phies of ev­ery first lady since Ros­alynn Carter adorn a hall­way lead­ing to the gar­den.
