Though Fall on the calendar doesn’t begin
‘Til the middle of September
Cool breezes are here to announce the presence
Of blessedly fall-like weather.
So what does this mean for folks like us
Who enjoy spending time outdoors?
It’s time to rediscover the joys of
Courtyards, like mine and yours!
The summer’s heat was blistering at times,
And rainfall seemed never-ending.
But for morning tea or an evening meal
More time on the patio we’re spending.
Fall’s colorful blooms and cool breezes
Make the courtyard rooms feel inviting,
And entertaining friends ‘neath the open sky
For a change of pace, is exciting.
So how do we make the most of the space?
What foods should we enjoy outdoors?
Well, wine goes well with everything:
Fresh salad, grilled fish, even s’mores!
(Trust me on that last one, friends,
While you might prefer Amaretto;
An outdoor wine that goes great with dessert
Is a refreshing glass of Presecco!)
Grilling is great for outdoor meals,
But you don’t have to eat something hot;
Serve bruschetta with fresh tomatoes, basil, and cheese,
An appetizer that pleases the most discriminating lot.
Al fresco dining is best when you
Can include things you pick grown in your spaces.
But each week, close to nearly every Windsong community
Farmers Markets are popular places.
So now that the winds of fall are near,
You can dine outdoors whenever you please.
Especially with neighbors and a private courtyard,
At Windsong – Where Life’s A Breeze!
