Part of my “small things” series, little bits and pieces I have picked up on my travels…

The Cotinus smoke leaf reminds me of dragons, something to do with the edges of the yellow as it butts up against the purple in the lamina, maybe it’s because its a scale shape, maybe because the common name is smoke bush. Yep – definitely a dragon hiding in there…
