Kenwood Cherry Blossoms
Posted by:  Magda Nakassis

The press release has been issued: the peak blooming period for Washington’s beloved and oh-so-delicate cherry trees is the first week in April. Thousands will throng the Mall. Hundreds will queue up for their chance to paddleboat in the Tidal Basin. Some crafty tourists will discover that cherry trees also populate the adjacent East Potomac Park. But for those who don’t feel like visiting the Jefferson Memorial or dealing with the crowds, you can enjoy those pretty cotton candy blossoms in Kenwood, a wealthy suburban neighborhood just across the District line. The streets of Kenwood are lined with cherry trees, and when in bloom, richy rich little kids set up high-class lemonade stands for the visitors. On weekends, the streets will be full of couples taking a promenade and rubberneckers crawling down the road. But even if it’s slightly congested, it will be nothing compared to downtown, and I can guarantee you’ll feel as though you’re walking through a delicious cloud.
