Outdoor Wednesday


 Have not enjoyed the Outdoor sights lately that are available each week at
http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com

This is the only way we knew how to do laundry for many years.  It is rare to see these days, but I spotted this sight recently.

 Also, one of the few things I enjoyed living on a farm, years ago, was gathering the eggs.  However, did not have a nice wire basket like this one.  These eggs are from my nieces three little hens she has in her back yard.

I used to hang all my laundry outside. It smelled so good when I brought it in later.

I hung out my wash when I was first married 40 years ago. It alwasy smelled so good when I took in it from the line. Those fresh eggs look beautiful!

I like the laundry picture! I also like seeing it when we drive around, it is colorful and you know someone is living there. Plus you can tell a good bit about a person by their laundry.

Hi There, I loved hanging my clothes out on the line to dry.. I would do that today IF I could. (Our community as a rule against outside clothes lines...Bah!)

I love the way sheet smell after being on the line...

We used to buy yard eggs (they were brown) from a lady down the street when I was young... Such great memories.

Hugs,
Betsy

We need to repair the clothesline that came with our house. Towels and sheets hanging on the line are still the very best! My folks use to buy eggs from a lil farm lady about fifty miles from our house. We traveled up there once a week to get them. They were wonderful. Suzanne has such a knack for the hens and their eggs!

Good quote! It looks like those hens must be doing a great job! That is a lot of eggs for just 3 hens--and the wire basket looks great!

We still hang out the laundry occasionally in the summer.

I did laundry in an old second-hand wringer washer and hung it out to dry for several years - rows and rows of diapers and sheets -- but they smelled so good when you brought them in. But I was so happy when we got an automatic washer and dryer! I thought I was in heaven.

The fresh eggs look wonderful. Our daughter has chickens -- she would love a basket like that (gift idea - thanks !)
