Well I haven't see one of those washing lines in a while Felicia, jolly handy to be able wind the washing in and out :) It's a lovely house, would that be a communal property do you think ?

Hi Felicia, Enjoyed these photos. Leave it up to the Amish to come up with a clothes line designed so you can reel-in the clothes. I have to agree with Sandra's comment ... that first pic is a work of art. John

Beautiful photographs, especially the first one. They have a hand painted look about them.
What fun photos of Amishland. It was clever of them to put up a pulley system for hanging laundry. No one would want to be outdoors hanging laundry today, at least not up here (-4 F.) Have a lovely day!

Now that's one heck of a great clothesline and what breezes it's sure to catch! Nice little homestead they have there, pony and all.

TexWisGirl said…

There is something cheerful about laundry hanging on the line and drying in the breeze.
Wonderful sunny pictures of a beautiful amish home :)
pssst...Did I really see a pair of long underpants hanging there? :D
Guess it's necessary if you wear skirts in the winter ;)

Very nice! LOVE the pony :)
Karen Schurr said…
That 1st shot is a show-stopper, for sure, Felicia. I had to sit and ponder it awhile, though. How are they going to reel that one line in with things hanging on the top line, too? Guess someone really tall is going to have to intercede :)
EG CameraGirl said…
I remember my grandmother with reels like that for hanging out laundry!
LV said…
That is the only way we dried our laundry for many years. Even when I moved to town, still had a cloths line, but eventually stopped using it.

I like the well organized clothes line that can be reeled in from that the house. The pulley system is so practical and well designed. A fine group of images.

Cute horse, and nice pics!
Amy Burzese said…
Nice daily life scenes.
Melissa said…
What a beautiful farmhouse! Love the laundry, especially the one red shirt.
ladyfi said…
That house is charming as is the pony!
I'll never get the interest in fences.

But I loved the pony.
An ingenious washing line. I remember when I was young every house had its washing out on a Monday morning, now everyone seems to dry their things with electricity - everyone except the Amish and me.
Ileana said…
:) Great pictures! I love first one.
barbara l. hale said…
Love these photos! To me there is something very appealing about hanging laundry. And the pony, of course...
Ida said…
These are wonderful. That 1st shot is great. What a cool idea with the Pulley system for the laundry. The pony behind the fence was cute.
that is a fantastic washing line and I love the horse behind the fence.
Debby Ray said…
Oh, it's glorious summertime again! These photos are phenomenal, Felicia!
Ruth Kelly said…
Clever clothes line - your pictures are almost too perfect.
Brian King said…
Gorgeous photos! You don't see many clothes lines these days. We had one when I was growing up.
Revrunner said…
That's a lot of wash!
What a lovely - domestic scene! Love the pony, too! xo Karen
Michelle said…
I love that laundry and that old brick house!
Yogi♪♪♪ said…
Such sharp beautiful photographs, Thank you for sharing.
Stephanie said…
Gorgeous scenery! Nice to see a clothesline and that they still exist in other parts of the world. They are illegal here which is a shame. I love the smell of freshly aired dried laundry. Cute pony!
Nora said…
I love the pony photo and the clothes on the line, it looks like a lovely place and a simpler time.
Love that laundry line, I want one!
What wonderful scenes! I especially love the clothes on the line in your first image. :)

Thanks for stopping by to comment on my fences.

What a great system for hanging laundry on the line.

Great photos! That washing line is really clever. Love the bright blue skies and the last photo of the horse was lovely. He has a sweet face!

The scenery is beautiful. Love the laundry on the line.
What neat photos! That's something you don't see in Florida! Happy weekend my friend! Hugs!
Mascha said…
Famous photoseries and a perfect construction for the clotheslines, it is made "with love"... (I have long clotheslines too in my garden and I like, how the fresh clothing is fluttering in the wind)
Have a great weekend
Naquillity said…

Debbie said…
