From the Columbia Association for today:

Famed cherry trees coming to Lake Kittamaqundi beginning with Arbor Day ceremony
It’s not just the District of Columbia that offers the sight of cherry trees blooming on the shores of a signature body of water — soon this sight will be a must-see springtime stop in downtown Columbia, Maryland, where people can come to see cherry trees on  Lake Kittamaqundi.
Columbia Association (CA) will be hosting a planting ceremony on National Arbor Day — Friday, April 26 — at 5 p.m. at Kennedy Gardens, which is located on the east side of Lake Kittamaqundi. Three  Yoshino cherries grown from the stock of the original Washington, D. C. cherry trees will be planted at the ceremony. These special legacy trees are a gift from Blossoms of Hope. The local organization also donated 25 additional trees to the restoration effort at Kennedy Gardens, including  Kwanzan cherry trees, dogwood trees and redbud trees. CA will plant these and dozens more trees, shrubs and perennials at Kennedy Gardens later this spring
“We expect that the blooming cherry trees will be a beautiful sight from the plaza across the lake,” said Jan Clark, landscape architect with CA’s Bureau of Community Building and Sustainability.
