clothes lines

tree tries to undermine clothes line



Marshall Stacks said...

you may say 'undermine' and I suggest it may be arboreal support?

Now is the perfect time to get the secateurs and prune while the sap is dormant.

undermining the rigid lines of Aust icon
- just the waviness of the branches against the wire.

(and not strictly against, there is sufficient gap for the hills to hoist)

Ann O'Dyne said...

... the Hills lines all strive ... for a round of hoisting.

I've got a fold down clothes line but always leave it up. Last summer I planted passion fruit at the back veranda, about a metre from the line. It took off like mad, leaping the metre to the line and totally covering it. I'll maybe cut it back eventually, meanwhile I can still peg my occasional washing: shirt and pair of trousers.

sounds like a good trade to me:
I'd give up a few feet* for passion fruit

*of clothes line

Lance Hill never foresaw that kind of competition (the bio-hoist).

By the way, I wonder how different our lives would be if Lancelot Leonard Hill had joined forces with Howard Walter Florey and Richard Bowyer Smith?

+ stump jump + mould.

a cultural shift?
