This & That


The weather has been lovely the past few days , sunshine warm breezes and blue sky’s . Yesterday the temps hit 21ºC or 69ºF . Papa set up our patio furniture on our patio porch , the bird bath in the garden and my  laundry line . My laundry line gets put away for the winter months .



I really love this laundry line as I can fold it up when not using it and when using it I can un lock it and it carousels in the breeze so my laundry dry's from all angles .

My Daffodils are slowly rising and forming blooms . All have been so slow due to the late spring and the up and down weather we have been having .


                                     I have slowly been adding garden decor here and there .



                         The trees are bursting there buds now and my Lilac bushes will soon follow !

Today it is windy and feels like it is cooling off with light rains . Today is house cleaning day for me so I better get cracking .

              Until next time  hope you have a good day ! Thanks for popping by !

It looks as cold there as it feels here...but I don't think we have snow predicted.

Um...the other kitty, no it wanted to eat the birds, not be friends.

I am up extra early this morning to see if I can stop the howling.

Hey, another pretty butterfly. Lovely spring-like photos. I remember those type of clothes lines. My mother had one back in the UK. I don't see any lines around here, against the HOA rules and how I miss the smell of fresh linens dried outside in the sun.

I"ve had my clothes line back up a couple of weeks and have had laundry out a few times. Not toady ... as it is raining. Your daffs are ahead of mine, I've just got leaves. But they are getting bigger each day.
I'm still unpacking boxes and rearranging things on this rainy day.

Back to cold and windy here again today with snow on its way. The Wood stove is still going at our house.

Oh I love the smell of clothes on the line mine would have blown to Quebec this day:)
Going to be cold again tonight wish it would make up its mind. Awesome shots. B

Aren't clotheslines just the best? We love ours!

Your daffs are already gorgeous!

No clothes line here, but growing up we used one all the time as my parents never owned a dryer. When it was too cold to hang clothes outdoors they were hung in the basement. For me, the clothes dryer is convenient and so I have never thought about having an outdoor one. Glad your weather is improving and lilacs are one of my favorite scents...anything purple.

Great shots! I don't have a clothes line but hang things on the fence--Anything to get that fresh smell!

I hope you've enjoyed your day!!

I have the exact same clothes line, we fold the extensions down and wrap it up for the winter... I know that the good weather has finally arrived when we can unwrap it and I can finally hang my clothes out... right now, it is still wrapped up cozily! Enjoy your spring weather! Cheers~

Looks like everything is starting to bud in "the cove"...
We had a late frost last the past two nights, I've held back on planting thank goodness.
I love your clothesline, so convenient, and the smell of freshly air-dried bed sheets, heavenly :)
