Patterns and Shapes in Nature- 9

Palmately lobed simple leaf

Tapioca leaf

Leaves are the best and often the easiest way to identify a plant. We can see two types of leaves around us; that is, Simple and Compound leaves.
No…no!! No botany lesson 😊 Just for info!
When the leaf blade is all in one piece, though it may be lobed, toothed etc, it is a simple leaf.
Look at these two leaves that are basically simple but highly lobed. These palmately lobed leaves have the lobes spreading radially from a point, like fingers on a hand.
Nature is so beautiful, isn’t it?
Beyond our words!!
