First lady dedicates 'healing' garden at children's hospital

First lady dedicates 'healing' garden at children's hospital

Her outfit was definitely a look - and while we're all for a military-inspired moment, this entire get-up, all buttoned up, could border on costume-like.

A new healing garden at the hospital opens Friday. Biographies of every first lady since Rosalynn Carter adorn a hallway leading to the garden.

"It took so many kind and caring people focused on these very fearless and wonderful children, and the end result is something everyone should be proud of", Trump said. Located on the 3rd floor roof, the garden will be a place where patients and their families can enjoy "fresh air and lovely views", the first lady said.

Melania said, "It has always been my belief that the nurturing and positive environment is vital to the health and well-being of all children".

The garden is named for Rachel "Bunny" Mellon, a friend of first lady Jacqueline Kennedy. Trump confirmed that they would move to Washington DC after the school year ends but noted the transition would be hard for Barron. Was it way too risky for the White House or do you love seeing her push the boundaries with her outfit choices?

"As an amateur, I questioned my ability to design a garden of such importance", she wrote.

He then shared the story of Mellon's daughter Eliza, who was severely injured in a vehicle accident and spent her last decade living at Mellon's Virginia estate.

Spurs keep pressure on Chelsea, Manchester misery
Second-half goals from Dele Alli and Harry Kane ensured Spurs will finish above Arsenal in the table for the first time since 1995.

Many years later, Mellon's estate provided a $5 million gift for the 7,200-square-foot garden project at Children's National, which is accessible to patients with wheelchairs, crutches and IV poles.

"She's been a great representative, I think", Trump said. "How are you feeling?"

She talked to the children as they worked on their crafts, colouring a floral sheet with a pink marker and bonding with one girl who was celebrating a birthday.

CNN reported she told the girl it had been her birthday on Wednesday, and went on to explain it was her husband's birthday in June, and that he is 70-years-old.

President Donald Trump recently revealed that his role as Chief Executive has been a strain on his family. "She gave an answer, and she's cool".

The children seemed to approve of the First Lady, as they were pictured laughing and giving her hugs.

"That's so nice", she said.
