Pierre Bonnard 1867 – 1947
Take those flapping clothes. I wonder what could be lovelier than a line of pink and jonquil rompers, gay little socks, pastel baby blankets. And showy sheets, bright bath towels, flowered luncheon cloths blowing on a line have as much beauty as a modern painting, for the eye that can see beauty. Basement indeed – who wants clothes dried in the basement when the dazzle of sun and the sweet of fragrance of fresh air are wasting outside?

One of the many reasons I love Gladys Taber!
I think just about every Aussie garden has a clothes line (usually a ‘hills’ hoist’) with driers more common in apartments. But then, even in our coldest spots, we don’t have anywhere near the low temperatures & length of winter you have.

That is so neat, Carol. It’s weird, but I love doing laundry in general, but I especially love putting items on my clothesline. ❤
