white wraiths hover over tender gardens

protecting them from the withering breath of frost

They seem like ghosts of sowers, having all the same gesture to throw the seeds, like an ancient pagan dance..

I am guessing these are peach trees in bloom?

Wonderful action shot, the movement of the sheets are superb in that light! Have a great weekend!

I'm with Cieldequimper thinking those sheets would be great to sleep on after a day in the wind. They don't look bad as ghosts either.

A novel way to dry the sheets.---It seems everyone was thinking the same.
But look even though frost may present itself look the sun is shining. YAY!! MB

And I thought you were drying your sheets outdoors.

Nothing like sheets on the line, when someone else has to do it! HA I have hung many a sheet but confess, I love the dryer. I do miss that lovely scent though. Nice photograph. Brought back sweet memories of my grandmother.

I thought they were flapping phantoms to keep the birds away from newly-planted seed. I love that you caught them billowing like that!

This is so original! Very clever!

Another unusual and beautiful image, with a lovely caption. I have seen something like this only in Northern Italy.
