The Questions:

What is your favorite color?  
It changes with each day! I love purples, blues, greens, reds, but they are all a specific shade not just any old purple, blue, green or red!

What is your favorite animal? Dogs and horses, but I love all animals. I also love bird watching – currently we have a nest of sparrows just under our guttering and you can see the baby birds poking out their beaks shouting for food! How cute!!
What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?  
Barley cup, red bush tea or rose lemonade.

Do you prefer Facebook or Twitter?  

What’s your passion? 

What’s your favorite pattern? 
Oh okay… erm never thought of this before – probably floral – erm not really sure!!!

Do you prefer giving or getting presents?  

What’s your favorite number?  

Favorite day of the week? 
Friday evening – especially if I know I have the full weekend ahead to write!

Favorite flower?
Pfft…. How long have you got….

I love the smell of lilies. I love Lily of the valley because it was my grandma’s favourite. I love daffodils because they remind me of my Mum. I love snowdrops because my Mum lovingly sewed about a zillion onto a dress for me, for a fancy dress competition at school (I didn’t win). I love freesias because they are the first flower I ever fell in love with the scent. I love peonies – deep red – because they remind me of my Dad. So – any of those!

Thank you Arjuna http://thewondrousdharma.com/ for nominating me.

A big thank you to all the writers, poets and artists out there, keep blogging!
