Monday Washing

Andrew of ‘Have Bag, Will Travel’ is running a weekly challenge all about photographs of washing lines. I knew I had a couple of rather lovely washing lines, but a look through my archives resulted in a few more. My final washing line comes from closer to home. This might please Andrew as the T-shirts are all pegged on one line and the jeans on the line behind. Not sure about the peg placement, though this is how I hang out my washing.

But a white-washed cottage with traditional sash windows and a picket fence might appease him.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. It won’t be too long before people are pegging out their own clothes in their own gardens to get these photos. 🙂 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete. x

        1. Not as aesthetically pleasing as a line I agree, but useful when you don’t have anything to hang a line from!

    1. I never iron (except pillowcases) but I peg on the seams at the side where you don’t notice any marks.

  2. Nice cottage 🙂 🙂 I don’t have a line either, but one of those fold up metal things. Not really big enough for sheets but needs must.

    1. Ah, yes, the clothes drier. I use them indoors too during wet weather, not great for sheets or duvet covers, but I have two which helps!
