text annotations encircled?

Hi all,

is there any way to encircle a text annotation?
Looking at

    http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/api/pyplot_api.html#matplotlib.pyplot.annotate

suggests tinkering with bbox I guess, but I haven't had any success with it.
Hints?

Cheers,
Nico

See these examples. bbox works in a same way for the text and the annotation.

http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/pylab_examples/fancytextbox_demo.html

http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/pylab_examples/annotation_demo2.html

And, the annotation guide my help.

http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/users/annotations_guide.html

But they do not support a circle (or ellipse), although implementing
it should be straight forward.

Regards,
