I’ve always loved clotheslines. Since leaving home I haven’t been able to have one and I just want one so badly, especially since living in the south! The weather gets so hot, clothes would dry in minutes!
We have a smaller yard here then we did in WA State, but the difference is we don’t have a fence. And we live in an HOA where I’m fairly sure we aren’t even allowed to have a clothesline. It’s disappointing because I think it would be so fun for the kids to have a line of their own like I did when I was little. We had these round metal u-shaped pipes that were upside down and then there were holes in them for the actual line, and between one ‘u’ there was a string at kid height that was put up when I was little. I would hang doll clothes up or small items that would fit there. And in South Dakota heat, everything would dry so fast. Then we would throw them in the dryer for just a few minutes to soften them up. I admit to not paying attention to the cost of electricity growing up, and I wonder how much money that saved my Mom? My Grandma still hangs her clothes out, or my Uncle does for her.
For now, I have to browse the clothesline flickr groupto see any. I wonder if we put up a fence, if we could get away with a small clothesline?
