Winter Blooms

After a week or so of warmish temperatures, we're back to winter's
gray hues with the floral ghosts of a summer past.
These pictures were taken on the grounds of the Eiteljorg Museum
in downtown Indianapolis. The museum, which houses a collection of
Native American art and artifacts, is a beautiful building.
It stands on the Central Canal along with the Indiana State Museum
and the Indianapolis Zoo. The canal itself forms the basis of 
the White River State Park and is a pleasant place to walk
or enjoy one's lunch hour during the work week.

Although the main entrances to both museums are on Washington Street, 
there's no doubt the more beautiful entries are located on the Canal.
The picture below was taken looking from  canal entrance of the 
Indiana State Museum towards downtown. The Eiteljorg
entrance is the darker tan stone on the right of the picture.
