Switzerland Trip 2014 Part 2

The oldest wood bridge in Europe

The oldest wood bridge in Europe

 

Bad-Säckingen in Germany.

It seems to take me back to this place on each trip back home to Switzerland. Last visit Bad-Säckingen was in March.

Have a look how different it looks when all is in bloom.

Holzbrücke Bad Säckingen is a road bridge over the Rhine. It connects the German city of Bad Säckingen with the village Stein in Switzerland. The wooden bridge spans 203.7 metres (668 ft) over the Hochrhein and is the longest roofed wooden bridge of Europe. The bridge is listed as a national registered monument in Switzerland (Kulturgut von nationaler Bedeutung im Kanton Aargau).

The bridge was built in 1272 and was destroyed several times (1570, 1633, 1678). The current bridge was completed in 1700. Today, the bridge is only open for pedestrians since Fridolinsbrücke (Swiss: Rheinbrücke Stein) was opened in 1979 for road traffic.

 

Bad-Säckingen in Deutschland

Ja auch dieses Mal ging es wieder nach Bad-Säckingen wie schon vor ein paar Jahren im März. 

Alles sieht etwas anders auf wenn die Blumen blühen.

“Parrots” In The Fall

Have a look at this Fall arrangement….. I remember from my childhood these “Parrots2013-10-01 16.44.23“, Milkweed (Silkweed) as they are called in English http://www.ediblewildfood.com/milkweed.aspx

My mind tells me, that my “Mutt” (btw. this is a short form for “Mutter” Mom in Swiss)  always had some of them in some kind of flower arrangement by the front door. I just wish I could remember this more clearly.DSC03940

Just always called them Parrots…since they look like it.

They show off this wonderful display of white glistening seed when You open them up and blow at them…they fly in the sky and drift off every so lightly…one just likes to go drift with them into to sunny sky.DSC04117

My son even found a recipe for this: http://the3foragers.blogspot.ca/2011_07_01_archive.html

2013-10-01 16.44.16Etwas, das ich von meiner Kindheit her in Erinnerung habe sind diese “Papageien”. Wenn ich mich recht daran erinnere hat meine “Mutt” (Mutter) immer ein Gesteck beim Eingang gehabt mit den Papageien darin.

Sie zeigen diese wunderbare Darstellung der weiß glänzenden Samens, wenn man sie öffnet und an den Samen blast…  je so leicht sind sie am fliegen so wunderschön in dem Sonnenschein…man könnte richtig treumerisch werden dabei zu zu sehen wie sie so leicht… ohne Sorge weg fliegen….DSC03934

Look how vivid this red is Flower all in full bloom

Since I was off work, I took my knitting project that I have on the go and sat out front on our porch. It was so nice and peaceful listening to the rain falling down on all the plants and grass. As I was knitting away, I noticed that the Standard Hibiscus Tree has a new flower open…so vivid and bright was that red I had to take some pictures…                              And with that I wish all of You a great weekend….Thanks for visiting me today

today this flower is starting to let go…second day open

Es war wieder ein richtiger Regentag gestern. Da ich zuhause war, nahm ich meine Strickarbeit und machte mich bequem auf unsern Hauseingang der Gedeckt ist. So richtig schoen war es dem Regen zu zuhören .

Daisies in my Garden

I am not sure when I have planted them in my garden last year.

Love how they make my face smile though

 I can sit next to them and enjoy them smiling at me….

Bin nicht sicher wann ich diese Margeritten letztes Jahr gepflanzt hatte.

Mein Gesicht lacht doch wenn ich diese sehen kann.

Es kommt mir vor als Lachen sie zurück zu mir wenn ich so daneben sitze…
