Whenever the weather permits good gardening:)
Stretching - learned in orthopedic rehab a la Feldenkrais and Pilates - I do first thing in the morning when I'm home alone, then it's a brisk 10-minute walk (downhill) to the bus stop.
But for a pulse-raising walk, it's best with a companion in the evening. Sadly, my husband and I head out much less often since the death of our dog, and we're months away from being able to adopt again. Perhaps we humans need to make deliberate incentives and "take [each other] for a walk" as a health-preserving plan?
My exercise regime is based around Tai Chi Chuan. Traditionally, in China, this is done first thing in the morning but I have classes at different times on different days. No time seems better than any other. Most exercises (that don't work up a real sweat) can be done in ordinary clothes and when I don't have a class I do one or two minutes of different exercises several times spaced out through the day. So I would say exercise when you can and outside is better than in when possible. The most important thing is retaining flexibility in whatever exercise system you use.

Whatever works best for each person
My regular time year 'round is first thing in the morning....sets me up great for the day and really energizes me. Works Mon-Fri, as those days I work in the afternoons. Sat and Sun I work mornings, so I then usually walk afternoons. In summer, also will walk or ride the bike for errands during the day and we often like to take the bikes out in the beautiful summer evenings we have here in the northeast.
Morning, hands down. Its done, its over and you don't have to think about it for the rest of the day.
I walk when ever I can.
