With a warm balmy breeze (sort of) it was the perfect weather for me to try and break my record from last year of 3/25/11. March was also documented as the earliest month I was able to hang outdoors in 2010 also. Note March 2011 had less snow on the ground than March 2010 and February 2012 has no snow on the ground at all! I'm beginning to see a pattern and I LIKE IT!
Who cares what the reason is for this change of our local weather pattern, be it El Nino, global warming, or whatever. I love the smell of clean laundry after it has been hung outdoors. I'll just remain grateful and appreciative that Old Man Winter didn't wreak havoc on us during the month of February this year; now March is another story. Stay tuned!
I did notice that the laundry from this year had an especially fresh fragrance and softness that I attribute to me now using homemade laundry soap. I also found that by not washing our clothes in all those unpronounceable chemicals that are found in most store-bought detergent, the outdoor freshness smell remains in the laundry for a longer time. Luv it!
What a beautiful site through the dining room window winter (February) of 2012.
