I remember helping my mother bring in the wash. Clothes really smell better when they dry in the fresh air. Nice post.
you take lovely pictures :)
Nothing better than the smell of fresh laundered sheets on the clothes line.
Lizzy -- I agree with you that clothes smell better when they are hung out to dry. -- barbara
Aparna -- Thanks for stopping by and leaving your complimentary words -- barbara
Joji -- the best time to enjoy fresh linens off the clothes line is when you sink your head upon a lined dried pillowcase at night. -- barbara
Clotheslines are Mother Natures way of getting rid of the wrinkles and lessening our ironing ;)
Thank you so much for stopping by, your photo's and knowledge are so helpful to all of us. I am in awe at what you get to see out there, HUGS MARY
Jayne -- Who irons anymore -- I thought everyone wore perma-press. Thanks for the funny comment -- barbara
Mary -- thanks for the nice comments. I search high and low to find interesting topics. Glad you enjoy them. -- barbara
What a happy picture! The green grass, the white building, the clothes line waiting, it all looks spring fresh.
I never minded using a clothesline even when the weather was freezing. The diapers were so fresh and clean after a good freeze and thaw.
Sheri -- I took this photo at an old vintage homestead out in the country. It was as neat as a pin. Thanks for the comments -- barbara
Dianne -- I've heard of folks hanging out their clothes in the freezing temps and always wondered if the clothes dried well. Your comment tells me it really does work! Thanks for the comment -- barbara
Sweet picture!I love my clothesline -- but am not hard core enough to use it in the winter.
Barbara,Clothes on outdoor lines with freezing temperatures only make stiff board-like clothes until you bring them inside where they promptly go limp and remain just as wet as when you hung them up! They will eventually dry, but the only time the water freezes and the ice can be shaken out, is when the temperature gets in the zero range! Speaking from Alaska experience! And, it's snowing here this a.m. so spring remains at a distance!! BooHoo :-(((Elora
Vicki -- My clothes line photo was taken on a recent day when temps reached in the 70s. Now the temps are back down but not for long. Thanks -- barbara
Elora -- Well, I don't really see clothes hanging out in the winter. But now that we have had some 70s, I do see clothes emerging from the dim hollows of the home into the sunlight and wind via the clothesline. So refreshing. Thanks -- barbara
I've got a clothes line behind my building, too. I wanted it closer to the house, but my son said it wouldn't look nice.
Hi Janet -- the photo was taken along a country road about ten miles from where I live. Some housing development associations have regulations that one cannot hang their clothes out around their home. Can't understand that thinking. thanks for stopping -- barbara
