Dew Drops

Just photos today. These pictures of my lawn were taken as I hung the washing out this morning- something I suspect I won't be able to do for much longer this year.

  1. Such twinkly grass in Worcestershire!

  2. Digital cameras are a wonder aren't they! But you still have to have the eye, and the temperament, to notice the magic. Beautiful - thank you.

  3. Looks like our grass here and I have just pegged out some washing too - not sure it will dry though and think the days of getting it washed, dried in the fresh air and ironed and put away in the same day are over now till next year!

  6. Dew drops & sun, it's so pretty! (We just had rain here today, I'm hoping you've sent the sun eastwards!?)

  7. So pretty - but not one spider in sight! Here we are knee-high in spiders, wherever you look.

  8. Just a nosy question today. Where do British people, without dryers, dry their clothes in the winter. I've always wondered.

    1. Oops, forgot the question mark.

    2. As a British person without a dryer, and I think I'm quite unusual in not having one, I hang things on a drying rack in my kitchen (the non cooking end), on two collapsible clothes horses and on the radiators. I did read somewhere recently that front loading machines like we use in Europe are better at spinning water out of clothes than top loaders. Not sure if this is true but it might account for our being able to manage without dryers a bit more easily. I should do blog post on living without a dryer shouldn't I?

  9. I love the way you've caught the light refraction in the drops.

  10. I don't have a dryer either. Well I do but it has been broken for 2 years. My husbands job is to repair machines!! I am quite happy with out a dryer, I dry indoors on a rack, over the raidators and in the airing cupboard. Outide if the weather is good, but won't even bother trying to peg it out soon- maybe another week or so until the clocks change.

    I dry outside all winter - and I live in Eastern Canada. Believe it or not, clothes still dry nicely on a breezy -20 day...We shovel a path to the clothesline on the deck and most clothes are perfectly dry, although sometimes the spot under the clothespin is damp... I do hang my 'smalls' and socks inside but even jeans go out... they only partially dry as they freeze before the wind gets them. I can often stand them up when they come in which is hilarious! but once they thaw out they are partially dry, and hung over a chair back overnight, they are fine - and still have that 'outdoor freshness I so love. I do have a dryer but I love that fresh smell. My 91 year old mother does the same.

    1. Well if you can do it in Canada in the winter maybe I should try harder here.

    2. I'm guessing the air in Eastern Canada at -20 is considerably drier than the air here at 0 or so.

    3. Ah, yes, you're probably right. We do have a lot of damp air do we not?

  12. So evocative ... mostly of the wet feet I get each morning out with the dogs! (My wellies have sprung a leak!)

    I know 'jewels in the grass' is a cliché, but that is exactly what you've captured here. Gorgeous images Sue :)

  13. Nothing to do with your gentle pics, but ..have you ever considered publishing your own little book/let of recipes? I'd buy it. Spiral bound with your photos too - what a project!

  14. Gorgeous pictures.

    I too dry without a drier. Our clothes are draped over an airer straight after lifting them from the washing machine and then the airer is moved into the living room at night to take advantage of the dying heat of the woodburner, sure it can take two days sometimes but you save so much money by not using a dryer and I think your clothes last longer and need less ironing.
