Katie's Riddles

Katie was having fun making up riddles for me while we were sitting on the couch the other day. See if you can figure them out. Since the background to my blog is no longer white, I can't just white them out. Check the comments to see the answers!

1. What's green at noon
    And blue in the morn'
    But was black as night
    When it was born?

2. Things hold this when they're at rest
    And display it at their best.

3. What goes "tick"
    But doesn't talk?

1. Our little weather indicator thingy that I got for Christmas from Chris and Anna. It changes color depending on the temperature out side. It's the coolest thing in the world.

2. Potential. I thought of some other things that would work, like "composure" and "patience."

3. A clock. This one was super easy.

Your riddles aren't so easy. I only answered #3 correctly. I couldn't even come up with guesses for the other two! I like Lisa & Alison's answer to #1.

Those are great! I thought of the sky for the first one. Close enough, right? Then I got the other two right. Sweet!
