Linens are beautiful both on and off their intended place. When linens are drying the fabric looks so calm and relaxing, flowing in the slightest breeze.
Isn't there a sense of order and achievement from seeing a neat array of clean sheets drying in the sun? Remember Belle scolding the children for running through her washing in La Belle et Le Bete? Watch it and give yourself a treat!
Linen smells so sweet after hanging in the fresh air.
I grew up in Australia, so the sight of an iconic Hill's Hoist fills me with nostalgia. After wrestling with rain and damp in Scotland, my mother delighted in hanging her laundry in the round beside the sea in Sydney: by the time she hung the last items, the first ones were dry!
With a little ingenuity you can hang a line nearly anywhere, and give yourself the pleasure of the crisp, fresh feeling of a line-dried bed.
