Boomers looking forward to summer as spring begins to fade

  Rhodies Pink Three IMG_7802 copy

It’s already hot and dry where Laura Lee Carter lives in southern Colorado, and the area is experiencing a severe drought. The weather has ruined the usual display of early native plant blooms.

Although we’ve had some nice, 70-degree weather here in the Seattle area rather than rain, our spring has been awash in beautiful blossoms – rhododendrons, dogwoods, azaleas, irises, tulips, roses, and many more.

But, the blossoms are, sadly, beginning to fade.

So, with Memorial Day in the rearview mirror and summer approaching, what are boomer bloggers up to? They’re writing about good decision making, palliative care, an escape from a dysfunctional family, skin cancer, the importance of continuing to learn, the Trump administration’s stepping up of deregulation, wine tasting, the Oregon Trail, and why we should hold onto our dreams.

Am not a boomer but I never mind the coming summer. Summers is always my best wheather.


Hi Ben,

Spring is my favorite time of year, followed closely by summer. I love planting my garden and seeing the vegetables grow.

Hey Rita, what an AMAZING BLOOMING BUSH you have there! I'm impressed! I remember my years in Seattle and the beautiful flower displays :)


Hi Laura Lee,

Yes, the Seattle area is so beautiful when it's not raining. I like the mild winters, unlike Central Washington where I grew up, but the gray days of rain can get depressing at times.
