The first rudbeckia lacianata to open this year. They are the latest flowers I have in the garden and open almost in September but last until the end of the month. They are about 2 meters tall, much taller than the usual rudbeckia and have large yellow flowers.FOTD 30th August 2021: Rudbeckia Lacianata

Let us begin the day with the morning clouds over the Jura mountains, seen from my front garden. It is uplifting when you stop hugging the bed and take the first steps outside in the morning world. I would add it is quite a fresh morning and I am sure that the pleasant Summer mornings are now leaving us slowly but surely, However we can always hope for an Indian Summer with pleasant temperatures and sun during September.
Son No . 2 and family left yesterday, after a journey up the loacal Weissenstein mountain and a visit to the now abandoned Cellulose paper factory in nearby Attisholz. It has now been left and the areal with the old buildings transformed into a gathering point with various restaurants and decorative graffitti on the buildings.
Here is a view from above. My son made a few photos which he sent to me and they seem to automatically enter my Flickr and Google photo app. It seems to be becoming quite popular here for an excursion and I hope to go there myself on the next visit of my son.
I had a feline visitor this morning, but after picking up his treats he decided to leave.
I am sure there will be many visits during the day.
Thge bees are still arriving on their pollen hunts, and are now enjoying the sedum flowers.
Otherwise it was a normal Sunday yesterday. I had a few extra chores, such as ironing the bed linen, the duvet cover and cushion cover and I also composed my online shopping list for Tuesday delivery. I had a small drama yesterday, although it was to be expected. My 300x lens on my Nikon eventually gave up, I dropped it a few years ago and now the focus no longer works. I mainly take photos with my iPhone camera today, but am now thinking about getting a new 300x lens as I will need it for my bird closeups and other photos. In the meanwhile I can use my 200x lens but naturally not so good for closeups. Life always has these negative surprises: a lens cost more than the original camera.
And I am now on my way. I want to bake a bread and after the week-end do some organising at home. A housewife’s work is never done. Have a good week, take care and see you around later.
