About hay poles


When my generation was little, these were such a common view in Finland - hay poles on the fields! I don't think anyone could've thought then that there will be a time when we will be purchasing the poles in the internet (whatever that would be...), one by one, and thinking of things to make of them. (Well, I'm sure no-one could think of those huge, white, plastic dinosaur eggs we see now-a-days on the fields, either...)

They are great for summerhouse - perfectly weathered, and if made nicely, like my stack is, you can use them almost for anything! Here are some ideas:

The common bamboo has turned into hay pole...these you can buy in the internet on various sites for 50-65 euros, if you don't want to make them yourself.

The wood rack we got custom-made by the local artisan, as it needed to be fitted exactly both sides of the chimney of the fireplace.
Lantern - or flowers...

This is also a nice idea - I think I will be using a larger rack for beach towels - they are always all over the summer place hanging, and MIGHT BE if we have a dedicated place for them somewhere beside the stairs from the lake, at least once a summer the towels could be found there...
