Melania plants seeds of hope
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.
