Too Much Of A Good Thing…

“Too much of a good thing can be wonderful” said Mae West

but whilst a host of golden Gazanias is a wonderful sight, too many of these natives of South Africa here in Western Australia take up space that our own natives might otherwise occupy.  There may also be a flow on effect to native fauna that depend on native flora.

So like many other things in life (too many?), moderation is the key.  Here is the second in my new series on the weeds that grow in our garden.

Gazanias Laugh At Drought

Too Much Of A Good Thing – Helen Lock

I have painted Gazanias before and posted more about them here.

Having enjoyed over 50mm / 2 inches of rain in the first 24 hours of this week, here in the Perth Hills, we’re laughing at drought too.  Long may it last!

    Lovely composition. No matter which way one chooses to hang the painting still will look cool.
    Ah, four paintings for the price of one! 🙂
    Nice intense colour, well done Helen.
