Weather "not cooperating? You should have seen the size of the snowflakes falling at my folks' place on Mother's Day! (Saw some that were at least 2inches across!) Don't put many orchids out for the summer -- there simply isn't enough space on my apt balcony. And the fact that my SE exposure gets full, unobstructed sun from around 8am until 2 or 3pm makes it far too intense for many chids. I do have my cacti/succulents and a few other highlighters out already. Won't bother bringing them in unless temps take a long very chilly dive.
