The scent of summer

There's nothing like fresh clean sheets that have been hanging on the line to dry.  I remember when I was a little girl my mom used to hang our sheets out to dry.  I loved how they were so crisp and clean when I climbed into bed and they smelled SO fresh.  It's one of my favorite memories as a child.  I hope to create those same memories for my girls.

To me, fresh sheets off the line is what summer smells like.

I had a little helper join me as I hung the sheets~

This darling humming bird stopped by for a refreshment and a chance to give his little wings a rest.

He was pretty sweet - and didn't seem too afraid of me!

He rested for a minute, then was on his way.

I cherish these last few weeks of summer, while I can take advantage of the sunny fresh air to dry my sheets.
 I love the fall, but fresh sheets off the line are something I look forward to like Christmas!

  1. Great post! I was just thinking about out fresh sheets the other day. Need to get myself a clothes line I guess.
