White House 2010 North Portico Ornament - $20.00


The North Portico faces Pennsylvania Avenue and hence is the official address of The White House: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The North lawn is also where the presidential helicopter, Marine One, lands.

Tunnel....

Growing up in Kenwood, we called it a tunnel of blossoms not a canopy. Canopy would have been any other type of tree. Our cherries made a glorious tunnel...lol.

Kenwood...

I grew up in Kenwood. My favorite time of day was after the tourist left in the evening. It was magical. Seeing the blossoms fall by either moon light or street light. Walking around in shorts and having blossoms fall like snow. I loved growing up in Kenwood.

Massive Kenwood Yoshino cherry tree

My home in Kenwood in the fifties.

This house is where I grew up with my sister Sally until we completed school and went off to college. My parents build this house during the war so instead of a wood frame construction, steel was used due to war shortage, and both the first and second floors were concrete with hot water heat. We had some great times there and I so remember climbing this tree but it was not quite this big then. As I remember the police were out in force in the spring as cutting a cherry tree was a crime and a large fine was imposed on those caught.
I know my mother sold the house after my father passed away in the late sixties and moved to my fathers family farm near Middletown Marylnad where I now live with my wife Sandy. My sister, Sally built a house on the farm as well but them moved to New Market Maryland some years ago.

You are welcome ... I'd hate to see a less than stellar driver get hurt.

Thanks for the warning, Cap'n Safety. Mind I don't hit a cherry tree and cut myself...

Cherry Trees at Kenwood

I really think Kenwood is a great alternative for those who cannot make it to the Thomas Jefferson tidal basin.
