Some time ago our dog Lulu had a Kennel makeover to celebrate her new name sign.
Well since then, it has been a cold, wet winter.
I decided that the courtyard needed a bit of sprucing up.
See, it is all looking a bit blahhh!
Out came the trusty pressure washer.
Boy was it addictive.
The fights we had over whose turn it was!
Don't the bricks look so much better.
One day I must tell you the story of those bricks.
We collected and cleaned every single one of them.
My hands still feel the pain.
Ta da, all tidy and perfect for a cuppa on a sunny day.
Don't worry about Lulu, the kennel is snuggled in under the mulberry tree in a corner near the shed.
It's cozy at night and she gets the morning sun on her doorstep.
Aren't these amazing?
Would you believe, they are made of resin?
I think they look like the real deal.
