Join us on a drive through Kenwood to see the Cherry Blossoms with coffee afterwards. Local cherry blossoms are about to bloom. Some think that Kenwood’s Cherry Blossoms are prettier than those at the Jefferson Memorial. If you want to enjoy the Kenwood Cherry Blossoms but find it difficult to walk the neighborhood hills, we will pick you up and drive around the neighborhood streets to enjoy the blossoms. Followed by coffee and snacks. Important to register in case our prediction is wrong for peak blooms and we need to select another date.

For those of you aching to get your hands in the dirt to mark the gardeners’ end of winter, come join the Triangle Work Crew on Saturday anytime between 9:00 am and 11:00 am. Bring your trowel and some work gloves. We will bring bags for recycling garden refuse. At this cleanup, we will be leaving many of the stalks a bit longer since moths and some bugs overwinter in them, but we have lots of weeding around the edges we can do along with pruning some bushes, edging, and finding new places to put leaves that have fallen into the grassy areas.

The Triangle Garden Work Crew will continue to prep the garden for its May blooming, but you can also simply stop by in the morning to celebrate the richness of Mother Earth and help steward her flourishing by planting some native plants in your own yard. Bradley Hills Village will help encourage you in that effort by giving away some pollinator plugs as long as they last. The bees, bugs, and butterflies will grace you later in the spring and summer by paying a visit to your garden bed. They love natives like sundrops, mountain mint, penstemon, milkweeds of any kind, butterfly weeds, liatris, cardinal flowers, asters, and many more. If you want to purchase some additional plants for your yard, consider going to the Northern Virginia Native Plant Sale April 27 from 9:00 am-2:00 pm where dozens of vendors have tempting offerings. Bring a wagon and some boxes! Don’t forget that the most efficient pollinator is a native tree. An oak, for example, supports 530 different species of butterflies, a black cherry 530, a poplar 368.
