I've been seriously thinking about having an outdoor clothesline again.
I really do miss hanging out laundry like I did way back when - that was what, over 30 years ago ??? when I was young and married to my now ex. I used to help my mom hang out and collect laundry when I was a kid so I already had all the knowledge (there really is a right and a wrong way to do it).

I also stitched closed the short sleeves so I could stuff small items in them that get lost in all the other laundry.
As the weather warms and the days get longer birds get excited. Nesting season can vary depending on the species of bird, the weather conditions, food ava...
