The calmness before the storm.

The spring in my area. It is not always sunny and warm. But we need rain for living.

  • Hello, dear Mary.

    Wow. I love it too. Thank you for this word. It's new for me 

  • yeah, all the atmosphere before a storm is very special... And the smell! Who doesn't love the smell in the air before and after the rain falls? :))  Did you know there's even a word for that? :)


  • Hello, Mary!
    I like to look at that too. Before the storm even birds stop singing. Everything is moving in total silence. It is getting darker and only the dim light is trying to get through black clouds and paint tops of trees. You feel the time stopping.
    Thank you, dear Mary for your comment. You have reminded me enjoyable moments

  • Nice pic!

    You know one of the things I like the most about stormy (but a bit sunny) days? The light. The light right before a storm is very beautiful. You can take awesome pictures with that light... just like this one :)

    Thanks for sharing!

  • Hi, NotAClue! :)

    You might not believe me, but 2 days ago I got caught by the rain on the half way to home. And instead of staying under the roof of something like a buss stop I decided to run under the heavy rain. And I enjoyed it! :) And of course the last meters until my home I was walking slowly.

  • Wooww...

  • Wow. Dear NotAClue, do you like to walk when it is raining? Maybe you are such an active person and have fun doing that . It is good for you. Indeed, your words sound so romantic, dancing under the rain especially with someone special. What can be better? However I have to tell you. The rain in Ukraine is not always warm and pleasant. Sometimes it can be an icy rain when a temperature is about zero.
    Believe Roman and me, please. In some cases we have to stay at home when it is raining hard.
    Thank you for your lovely comment, dear. I have enjoyed reading it.

  • Hello Roma,

    I share your opinion about that. What a nice feeling to stay at home and look out a window when it is raining. It is so pleasant to do the things you like and feel comfortable staying in a cozy place.

  • Dear Svitlana,

    Yes, but not that much. I just don't like it when I have to be outside or when it harm the trees or buildings or like that. When I have to be at home and when when my internet connection is good, then why not? :D

    And yes, the wind will blow umbrellas away or break them.

  • Dear Ella,
    I agree with you. Not a single fence will protect from criminals.
    Everything depends on society.
