"Green" Acres

Morningstar Meadows is going a bit green these days. In addition to lush green grazing pastures, and lettuce sprouting in the garden, we’re getting a little more energy conserving! For Mother’s Day I requested a clothes line. It finally was erected and christened this weekend!


It’s the coolest thing, because it can be fed laundry right from the deck! It’s super heavy duty and 75 feet long! The clothes get the early morning sun – they’re out there blowing right now, drying so fast in the gusty breezes that are so common here on Stewart Hill. I know that many of you who use a clothes line know what a great feeling it is to use – knowing you’re saving money, drying in the fresh outdoor breeze. Just getting outside while you’re doing laundry is wonderful!

It’s very pastoral.

However, when our first white sheet gets hit by berry-colored bird droppings, I’ll probably be a little less nostalgic about it all! That being said, at least I can say that comparatively, a little bit of bird droppings is nothing compared to what we had in Australia. If you left your clothes out overnight, the fruit bats would deposit the most colorful guano on your clothes!!
