When my hubby and I bought our home we had a long clothesline off the back deck which broke and was replaced with an 'umbrella' style one down on the ground. The umbrella one wasn't very efficient as the trees grew and shaded it and also the clothes hung in parallel lines and didn't get enough breeze or sun. We finally hooked up a long line to our neighbours post again last summer. I have gotten more use out of that clothesline this summer! I love the fresh air scent when I bring them in and fold them. And, I also love the fact that, due to a very sunny, dry summer we are saving money! I probably won't hang laundry out this winter very often as the sunlight hours will be limited in our backyard. I do know I'll miss the fresh smell until next spring when once again I can use the clothesline, and not the dryer, and save more money! Do you have a clothesline and have you been using it this summer?
