first day of Spring pictures

James was snoozing on the balcony near the stairs down, but I just walked over her:



Here is the view from there showing the near sidewalk which goes directly to the Art Institute to the right and the diagonal path trough McKinley Park across Forest. I took the latter:



Here is the view of the Dayton Art Institute from the middle of the park:
