Ever been stung by a bee? Oh yes, there’s nothing quite like that searing sting!

My favorite outdoor activity is: Entertaining!

What I love most about entertaining outdoors is: Decorating and cooking with seasonal food and flora as my inspiration.

Who would you invite to your dream alfresco dinner party? In no particular order: Dorothy Draper, Truman Capote, Cole Porter, Meryl Streep, Jacque Pepin, Oprah, Joni Michell, George Carlin, Sidney Poitier, and Placido Domingo.

Every good outdoor gathering has: Good company, good wine, good food, and good music.

Everything is _________ outdoors. Magical
