W&N watercolour on Aqua 300gsm watercolour paper

There’s a proverb that says, “Spring has come when you can put your foot on three daisies” and James Montgomery said,

“The Rose has but a Summer reign,
The daisy never dies.

Here in the Southern Hemisphere (South Africa) we are heading for winter, but I still have three daisies in my garden and will well into the winter until the frost gets too much for these little beauties. But they will bounce back again in early spring to grace my garden with light and sunshine once again.

Daisies belong to one of the largest families of plants in the world, that of “vascular plants”, i.e. those which circulate goodness around their systems, making up almost 10% of all flowering plants on Earth and are found everywhere on Earth except Antarctica.

Daisy leaves are edible and can make a tasty addition to salads (they’re closely related to artichoke and are high in Vitamin C). Medicinal properties ascribed to the daisy include that it slows bleeding, relieves indigestion and eases coughs. In homeopathy, the garden daisy is known as the gardener’s friend for its ability to ease an aching back.

I am a watercolorist living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa. The inspiration for my art is the wonderfully rich variety of Fauna and Flora to be found throughout this beautiful country.
