Nothing says summer like beautiful flowers and greenhouses, or is that spring…well anyways the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens will be in full bloom this weekend for visitors.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, July 21st the Gardens will hold its annual Water Lily and Founders Day Festival, celebrating some of the last of D.C.'s original marsh land.  The gardens will be open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., timed to match the peak of the water plants' blooming. Tours will be provided.

The DC Audubon will lead a bird walk through the gardens lasting approximately three hours. If you plan to attend the bird walk, RSVP's are required by leader Dhananjaya Kat.
