Our Colourful Lion.

Two lions stand at the main entrance of our house. Initially they were just a cement colour, but two weeks ago I asked the gardener to paint them white, hoping that they might look a little better. Well I was wrong ..... they looked even more odd. I nick-named them our 'ghost lions' !


Then I hit on the idea ..... Why not let Tanzi transform them with her painting!

She had a ball ....... for two days she was intent on making this lion "the best in the world!"

So Tanzi's 'gargoyle' stands proudly at our front door, waiting to be admired by all those who pass by!!
