Hi Mark - 

A little closer to VT... here in CT I've been seeing a good showing of Spring 
Azures (over the past 2 weeks) and Mourning Cloaks(3 weeks), and have heard 
reports of Cabbage Whites, Question Marks, and a Compton's Tortoiseshell.  Your 
butterflies can't be far behind.

best -

Here in Northwestern North Dakota, I have seen 3 Nymphalis antiopa
(still haven't seen any milberti or Polygonia, though).  The crocuses
are blooming, the grass is greening, and the snow is almost gone. 
Good luck in Vermont - they may appear sooner than you expect.
