The lotuses and water lilies are in full spectacular bloom at Kenilworth Acquatic Gardens!
This little oasis is truly a hidden gem in Washington, D.C., and few people know about it. The flowers bloom once a year in July and present a beautiful display of pinks, whites, and greens. It's a photographer's paradise....
Let's beat the heat/humidity and the crush of visitors who will be arriving for the Lotus & Water Lily Festival later in the morning (starting at 10am).
The visitor center doesn't open until 9am, but they said the gates will be open by 7. So ... let's meet in front of the visitor's center at 7:30am to start photographing the flowers.
Street parking is available near the gardens. Let me know if you want to meet up beforehand somewhere and carpool over.
We're guaranteed to get great photos. Hope you can join us!
