I was actually really excited when I saw the prompt for this assignment. In the last four weeks that I have been home, I have had very little time to actually sit outside and enjoy nature. This assignment allowed me to do just that.
The color I chose for this assignment was purple. Purple and I go way back to my childhood. I have always loved the color but I not entirely sure why. The color purple is often associated with royalty, creativity, wisdom, and ambition. I would say that three of these characteristics have some form of relation to me.
- I have always been a pretty creative person. I love finding new hobbies and crafts and bringing them to life!
- I would consider myself to be a pretty ambitious person as well. If I have a goal in mind, nothing can stop me until I achieve it.
- Lastly, I have always been referred to as an ‘old soul’, meaning I have wisdom beyond my years.
- I do not have a relation to royalty, although it would be cool to be Mia Thermopolis for a day!
I took these photos in my backyard because I ran out of time before I had to go to work, but I am still happy with the results!
Color Walk Time Line – Flower Edition
10:45 AM: Lupines – if you read my story about the apple tree in my backyard you will know that it was not here when we first moved in, these flowers were also not there. If you look past the flowers you will see a pretty dense section of trees, down in that jungle, as we always have referred to it as are a variety of different colored lupine flowers. My brother and I picked them for my mom when we were kids and when they died she threw them down that cliff, now they come back every year.
10:48 AM: Mom’s Sunscreen – my flower edition color walk was rudely interrupted by my mothers sunscreen that has been outside since last summer
10:49 AM: Petunias – planted by my mother
10:50 AM: Lilac bush – the only survivor left after my brother mowed down my mother’s rose bushes
10:52 AM: Marsh pea – I knew these flowers were in my backyard I just never knew what they were until I did a reverse image search for this assignment
10:54 AM: Onion peel – is it a red onion or purple onion?
10:55 AM: Red clover – while I was going through my backyard I was specifically looking for this flower because I knew we had it in our backyard and this is the only one I found
10:57 AM: Mysterious flower – I was unable to figure out what this flower is and I also did not know we had them in our yard
