"Wash Day in France"

It was "wash day" at my house today too.................
After over a week away there's a lot to catch up on.

This picture is of a French village scene that I love.
Freshly laundered clothes drying on the line....
three floors up in an old apartment building.

Why is even the mundane a work of art in France?
Is it the stucco facade of the building,
the aged and beautifully chipped paint on the French Grey shutters?
Is it the graceful wrought iron scroll holding the lantern?

I think it's all of it combined into a beautiful French still life.
