Good Day to you all at ePz.

Thank you all so very much for all your great comments, messages and votes following yesterdays upload. A further mention going to AnneB50 (Anne) for her GE Award for which I am most grateful.

Todays image was captured whilst roaming the gardens of the home. I think it is some form of Clematis as it was steadily working its way over a rather hight trellis.

I have included a monochrome variant for comparison which I hope you will like just as much.

I hope that you all have a great day and thank you all for your continued support.

Regards as always NathanGrinGrinGrin
