Question for your Vermonters - what is the best time to see fall foliage in Vermont?

This is off-topic Smiling But I will post and leave this in the Daylily forum for a few days in case anyone else is interested.

It depends a bit on the weather, what area of Vermont you want to visit and when that area "peaks". Usually the first week of Oct. there is color in the north and mountain tops of the Greens, then it moves to the lower elevations around the end of the second week. Best guess to see peak in the state is usually the second to third weeks of October.
This is a good website with a lot of info on the foliage season and scheduled events.

Under The Foliage tab you will find several useful sections, Foliage Map and Foliage Tracking. These will get updated as the leaves start to change. Once you are up here the local news stations give daily foliage reports, where to go, roads to travel etc., as well.
They are saying this could be one of the best years ever for the foliage due to the wet weather this spring. Sadly, there will be no daylilies blooming during foliage season.

,,,,,"Sadly, there will be no daylilies blooming during foliage season."

LOL! Even the showiest of blooms might have a difficult time competing with fall foliage when it's at its best. It's not too common here in Texas, but on those shrubs and trees that manage it in good years, it's really a spectacular event. Nothing like the photos I've seen in photos of the northeast, though. I'm afraid I might overlook daylily blooms. Probably not, but maybe.
