Clothesline "Sculpture" - I can envision putting this at the end of the deck. For evening outdoor gatherings when not in use, put up strings of lights and food/drink table underneath. Or a nice canopy with climbing roses, clematis or other vine flowers.
When the clothes dryer entered the America household in the line-drying soon fell out of vogue and families began to rely on this modern appliance to quickly and easily complete a necessary household chore.
A few reasons why line drying is good: * We save money * The sun kills germs and therefore the clothes smell so much better * Dryers are more apt to shrink your clothing * The sun doesn't cause static cling * Hanging clothes is good old-fashioned exercise
