Northern Vermont on Memorial Day

What an unusual warm, sunny dry late May weekend in Northern Vermont.  Wildflowers are blooming that usually bloom mid June and the lake water temperature is in the mid 60’s; those are swimming temperatures!  Loons are swimming on the lake, but are quiet at night.  Barred owls are calling to each other at night.  Early in the weekend south winds brought very warm air; later in the weekend a shift to west winds brought clear skies, drier air, but still warm temperatures.  Black flies are starting to bite, butterflies are everywhere, fishing boats are out on the lake, and the hummingbirds are visiting the feeders.  Can it be any more beautiful than this in the northeast kingdom?
