Friday Smiles

Hello Everyone,

Happy Friday to you all. It's been another week where I haven't been much further than the supermarket so there's not a lot to share with Annie's Friday Smiles - just a few photos from the garden again.
My lovely 'Elena' rose - it's beautifully scented and if you look closely you can see a wee insect having a sniff.
Clematis 'Niobe' - I fell for this clematis many years ago on a visit to Haddon Hall in the Peak District. It's a lovely old mansion house from the middle ages with an equally lovely old walled garden that is full of beautiful clematis and roses - my idea of heaven!
Cranesbills, so called because the shape of the way the seedheads - they are beak-like that, when ripe, suddenly spring open and disperse the seed a fair old distance . This hardy geranium not only makes very good ground cover, keeps the weeds down, but is very attractive to bees.

That's it for me this week.Plenty to smile about. Hope you have had a very happy week too with much to make you smile. And if you have, do join in with Annie's Friday Smile meme over on A Stitch In Time.

Take care everyone and have a wonderful weekend.

You have so many beautiful garden spots. I am in love with that rose. Even the bugs are attracted to it. Your gardens put mine to shame every day, and once again, I'm totally impressed with these photos. Have a great weekend, because Friday is already history in your world.
