Washing Day at the farm house

We are having such beautiful weather here at the farm house. Yesterday I walked outside and saw Mr FH's work clothes drying on the clothes line. When I came to live here 33 years ago I had this typical Aussie farm house clothes line and I hated it but over the years I realise it is just part of the Aussie farm life. It is a strong wire tied between two trees - nothing special but it really is the best line for drying clothes. The slightest breeze just drifts through the clothes and they are dry in no time.

So my clothes line has stayed and will continue to remain there until I leave the farm.

Nothing smells better than clothes dried on the clothesline, bedding is my favorite!

My hubby's bib overalls are too heavy for my dryer so I also know the value of a good old fashioned clothesline. Great post.

G'morn, Suzy ~ Love the clothesline decor ... I prefer hanging out as much as possible as often as weather permits ... that fresh smell is so invigorating yet soothing.

We finally finished both house constructions & took off for 2 weeks. I apologize, but will be better now.

TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

I love hanging my clothes out on the line. The dryer can go broke for all I care. Your photos of the clothes on the line are lovely!
