Hail damage

Hail came through here Aug. 10 and pretty much destroyed all the crops, vegetables, and flowers. The lilies I refused to cut, so they'd bloom next year, were cut down much lower than I would have cut them if I had taken them inside.

This season is over. But next year???? I had some well-established Oriental and Asiatic lilies, along with the newer lilies. I also had delphiniums and peonies, hostas, true geraniums, veronica, rudbeckia, salvia 'Purple Rain', iris--bearded and Siberian--monarda, and many other flowers. What do you think my chances are for next year with these flowers? I want to plan for a flower show June 24 and another in early August. Thanks for your advice.
