#TreeSquare 12: California Dreaming

To join in the fun of squares this month, create your square post and include a pingback to any of my daily square posts in July. Don’t forget to use the theme’s tag – TreeSquare, and I’d love it if you left a comment.

Becky B.

In this month’s square’s challenge I will start at home and spiral farther and farther from our home in Prescott, AZ to share different tree species in my travels. All of these posts will work for both Becky B’s Squares and Cee’s Flower of the Day, #FOTD

California Dreaming

All the leaves are brown (All the leaves are brown)
And the sky is grey (And the sky is grey)

I’ve been for a walk (I’ve been for a walk)
On a winter’s day (On a winter’s day) .

Road 196 Woodlake, CA


I’d be safe and warm (I’d be safe and warm)
If I was in L.A. (If I was in L.A.)

Stopped into a church
I passed along the way

Well, I got down on my knees (Got down on my knees)
And I pretend to pray (I pretend to pray)

You know the preacher liked the cold (Preacher liked the cold)
He knows I’m gonna stay (Knows I’m gonna stay)

Coming Up

I’ll be back at Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays in two days with a new topic of Exploration. Until then, post your comments on Terri’s post for this week’s topic of Writer’s Choice.

I’m so excited to announce that Cathy Cade will be hosting her friend Wendy Fletcher for August Story Chat. Wendy Fletcher is the leader of Cathy’s u3a writing group. For more information about Story Chat and how you can contribute, see my Story Chat page. Don’t forget that Gary A. Wilson’s story, “Sometimes a Miracle” is still open for comments.

The Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC) is already coming up on our fifth post right here on my blog at 9:00 am on Friday. I can’t believe it’s been over a month! Thank you all for your many interesting responses. It’s been fun to travel all over the world through your posts. Please post on Cee’s blog until Friday.

Happy Monday! Have a great week.

    • It is a lot of fun. This is my second time of participating every day – or trying to. It is a real learning experience, and lots of decision-making, too.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
