DREAMY SUMMER NIGHT VIEWS




The first spring rain, always forgetting how wonderful it smells and feels. How it is soft and silent, a happy one. How it feels to fall asleep with the melody of it. First spring rain, a mood of a kind. A mood for being comforted. 


The sound made me dreaming of the views that I saw from my homes some years ago, in Iceland. The bright summer night light. The open sky. Humming streets. Birch leaves in wind. Landings and taking offs of the domestic aircraft. An old woman with a scarf around her head, collecting all the bottles. Neighbor kid in a tiger mood.


What do you see from your window?


Weekend of biking in spring rain, balcony naps, reading, baking. Eating with friends. Listening to Faroese language. Summer plans with strawberry tastes and lime. Planting herbs.


Never setting sun, it feels almost like it already.


Have a good beginning for the new week!

  3. Your descriptions are like beautiful mini-novels. Rain always has lovely childhood associations for me. This weekend, it was sunny here (at last!). I am loving looking out my windows at my garden coming alive (amelanchier shrub in bloom, japanese maple's leaves unfurling).

    1. Somehow I do remember too how rain felt as a child. Those moments the biggest adventures were found from books. Especially one memory I have of our summerhouse where my mother read me books and the thin roof made such a perfect melody for it.

      You must have such a beautiful garden.

  4. Those photos are very dreamy! And I love the spring rain so much. The other day here there was a thunderstorm just before I went to bed, so I had to stay up to listen and watch. Then it became a softer rain and it was nice to listen to as I fell asleep.

    From my window I see hundreds and hundreds of treetops, and they're differently green all the time. It's always changing.

    1. Thunderstorm sounds so nice for an evening weather. And the moment when it gets softer, a perfect moment to fall between a pillow and a blanket.

      Sweet dreams (:

  5. Here is still feels like Autumn/Winter. Can't wait to smell the first spring rain.

    I see (almost) green trees, a little bit of the river and people who cycle. It's an amazing view even though we live in the centre of the city.

    1. Indeed. Yesterday after rain it got a bit warmer and it smelled really like somewhere else, I felt like being abroad. What a moment it was to bicycle all around.

    1. That must be very beautiful, Beth. There should be a color named "The Green After Spring Rain".
