It’s been a long time since I participated in Weekly Photo Post, and what a perfect theme since my return from Washington and Oregon. While Fairbanks has been receiving a mid-April snowstorm, resulting in lots of white, the Washington Park Arboretum had very-vibrant warm, spring hues.
My botanical identification skills are sub-par, and the only plant species I recognize are tulips, which were actually in someone’s front yard. The first three images are of pink flowers. Pink is a subset of red, a warm hue which is known for psychological responses of passion, love, and happines. But also blood and anger and danger. The pink petals with green leafs are also complementary colors.
The final image is a pretty purple, a cool color, which in western culture is asosciated with royalty, luxury and occassionally magic.

Hey! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I had
to ask. Does operating a well-established website like yours take a large amount of
work? I’m completely new to blogging but I do write
in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my
own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions
or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
Thanks for the questions.
Yes, it does take a large amount of time, work and diligence. That’s why there are often lapses in my postings.
Writing is probably the most important part, often what slows me down is not having the words to combine with pictures. Be critical and try to avoid typos.
Emulate blogs you look up to, and experiment. Blog structures are incredibly fluid, a feature I don’t implement enough. Let me know how it goes!
