I've been tagged!

I’ve been tagged by Margaret at
http://earthly-paradise.blogspot.com/
THE RULES:
1. Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you.
2. Post THE RULES on your blog.
3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog.
4. Tag 7 people and link to them.
5. Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.

So … here are 7 things about me …
1. My favorite flower? White & purple iris, fragrant roses, crocus in the springtime, wild flowers on the hillside … I don’t think there is a flower that I don’t like. I find flowers and their insect companions to be a fascinating symbiosis!
2. A favorite food? Salmon … Barbequed Wild Pacific Salmon, with friends on a warm summer night.
3. Favorite dessert? Anything made with dark chocolate -Chocolate covered strawberries.
4. I love to walk in the woods, along a beach … this week we walked along the edge of Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada and then back across the lake. It was frozen to a depth of 5 feet and the temperature was -15 degrees C. Sculptors were carving ice.
5. Beautiful sunsets take my breath away! I don’t get up in time for sunrise.
6. At an earlier time, I did water colours and I want to do them again.
7. I’ve had cats all my life … it seems strange when I’m sitting in my favorite chair and I don’t have a cat in my lap.

I’ve tagged the following, they are a few of my favorite blogs and you will notice an international flavour!

Hi Vivian! I took one look at your picture and thought to myself: wow, that looks like the ice castle at Lake Louise! It's been really cold there this week. Anyway, I also love walking across the lake--it feels so weird to me still, since in the summer it's filled with people in canoes. How funny that salmon is your favourite food ;). I am totally with you on sunsets, though. Much prettier than sunrises and not have as much work to be awake for them!
