Clean Linens

The lawn was mowed for the first time this year and the air is filled with the smell of fresh cut grass.

Our clothesline, for the first time as well, is displaying freshly cleaned linens that are blowing in the breeze. As I'm sitting here writing this, I'm watching them sway back and forth gracefully as the wind comes and goes.

It's a lovely day, but it will be an even lovelier sleep tonight. 
I love climbing into bed with crisp, clean linens that smell like they've spent the afternoon outdoors.

Willen's Easter basket makes the perfect holder for my clothes pins.


  1. Nothing makes me happier than sheets or blankets or clothes on the line....nothing compares to that smell of the outdoors and settling in for a good sleep at night. Mom~.

    1. I figured out what is better than a bed with clean sheets... Coming home and finding those clean sheets on your bed!

      Thanks mom.

  2. Oh how I love fresh linen blowing in the breezes and the crispness of the sheets!
    Hanging clothes outdoors is a pleasure I look forward to every summer!
    Love your shots and your thoughts on the beauty of clean linen!

    All my heart,
    Deborah ;)

  3. And I adore the whole Niagara area!
    We come every summer and will be again in Niagara and Niagara on the Lake!

    Deborah ;)
