Notice to those who love the art of gardening: Laman Public Library, 2801 Orange St., opens the Smithsonian traveling exhibition "The White House Garden" tomorrow Saturday, May 26.

The exhibit, which includes photographs and other materials, follows the development of the 18-acre White House gardens and grounds, created by Pierre Charles L'Enfant, to the present. Laman will host a reception from 6-8 p.m. Friday, June 1, and former executive groundskeeper Mike Lawn (yes, that's his name!) and Little Rock garden pro Janet Carson will give a talk at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 2.

The library gallery is on the second floor and there's a coffee shop and lounge nearby for thinking green thumb thoughts.
