I have learnt from my husband that there are two methods that can be used to identify the beginning and end of seasons. The first is an astronomical definition which uses the exact dates of the solstices and equinoxes to determine when seasons begin and end, and the second is a meteorological definition which essentially uses temperature as the primary means of denoting season.
So if you like the former definition then it would be correct to say that we are already deep into autumn and approaching the start of winter in the first week of May. If, however, you prefer the latter definition, using temperature, then you would be saying we are still in the last throes of summer and autumn has barely begun. Confusing isn’t it?
Personally I am loving the cooler evenings, dinner at home on the patio is still standard operating procedure in our household! But I do confess I have one eye on the winter fashions in the stores and I am already thinking of some of the changes I want to make inside my home in readiness for the cooler times that are coming.
Have a wonderful April and we hope to see you in the shop!
