White House Gardens and Grounds Press Collection
Twice every year, in the fall and spring, the President and the First Lady open the White House grounds to visitors for self-guided tours of the South Lawn. In the spring, cherry blossoms bloom, and the landscape is filled with stunning greenery. In the fall, trees at the White House reflect seasonal changes, providing a special opportunity for guests to admire the foliage surrounding the Executive Mansion.
