Beautiful Pink

Recently I was in Kirkland and randomly came across this tree
with beautiful pink flowers. They appeared like silk and are slightly
translucent. I don’t know the name of the tree but the flowers are stunning.

History of the Color Pink

No other color in modern history has carried such gravitas when it comes to associations with masculinity, femininity and politics. The color  PINK, a vessel for weighty subject material, indeed. Especially when you consider the fact that it has only been around in its proper form for less than 500 years. Who knows what the future for this light shade of red will hold, but this info graphic covers the last hundred years of politics and pop culture in all things pink.
