Vermont Flower Season Still Early

The entire spring was early in Vermont due to record warm temperatures this year, and now that we're into summer, everything is still running very early.
A day lily blooms in my St. Albans, Vermont garden this week.

Flowers in my gardens are about where'd you expect them in mid-July. The day lilies have been blooming for awhile now. Astilbe is also blooming nicely now. Black eyed Susans are ready to bloom.

All this leaves me wondering whether there will be any flowers at all in August.

Meanwhile, I'll just enjoy what I have. And if this trend continues, I'll have to find more late blooming perennials so that what usually blooms in September will brighten my garden in August.
