The slow start to warm weather has upset my inner clock. The calendar tells me it is late July, but it doesn’t feel like it. Nestled in a shaded garden, the snapshot above of the chapel with summer lillies looks and feels more like autumn.
I need a few days at the beach [Door County would be nice] or a round of 90 degree days to reset my timer. Realistically,we have another month of possible “hot” before I begin putting out pumpkins. If Illinois weather resurfaces, that will happen about the time the kids return to classrooms without air conditioning…
Guaging when to set out seasonal merchandise is tricky. It is all about sensing the desires of your customers. Unless I’m wrong, autumn may arrive sooner this year than expected.
