Perfect Weather

Campground in Giant Sequoia National Monument, California.
 


If you’re going camping, you’ll need a new tent;
A blue one is worth every dollar and cent
You spend for its color and beauty and style—
The weather is perfect, let’s camp for a while!

Our Picnic

Campground in Giant Sequoia National Monument, California.
 


Our picnic’s almost over, and night will soon be here;
We’ll crawl into our big blue tent and then just disappear!
Our picnic in the forest was lovelier than most,
But one thing marred its beauty: We’d no s’mores to toast!

Blue Monday: Barrel Cactus

Photobucket
Barrel cactus, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
 


High above the cactuses in the clear blue sky
Winter rainclouds sometimes come, sometimes multiply.
Not today, however, there’s not a cloud in sight;
Perfect for the cactuses: hot and dry and bright!
