Echoes of My Neighborhood



I spent some time at the garden this week. It was in full spring fling. They are getting ready for the Annual Cherry Blossom Festival to take place on 30 Apr – 01 May. And, a film crew was poking about. Something is cooking as evidence by to multitude of big box trucks parked on the street outside the park. A movie is in the making.
