In The Meantime!

I know we're going to get walloped, in the not too distant future, with the white stuff, but, in the meantime, this is the only white in my backyard - white sheets, washed and hung this morning!

I've always thought laundry hanging up to dry had some sort of artistic charm to it...your photo certainly shows that. It reminds me of paper folding art.

LOTS of the cold white stuff here...!

I bet your Racoons smell outdoor fresh, too, BF. And I KNOW you don't tumble-dry them indoors. LAFF!

Nice laneway shots!

Has anyone read the book " Fine lines : a celebration of clothesline culture" a fun read, written by a Nova Scotian.

Nice to see someobe else that likes to hang out laundry.

nothing smells nicer than bedding hung on the . unfortunatel too many communities are passing bylaws to forbid clothes lines in their neighborhoods..mine included. personally I think it's a stupid bylaw

I believe in Ontario, municipalities can no longer pass such a by-law. I woulda ignored it anyway....
