Can you name that leaf?

by Mike Wiley

What could be more perfect for our February cover than a leaf or flower cleverly shaped like a heart?  Local photographer, Corinne McAuley was the eagle-eye who took this timely photo and we all agreed that the photo had to be the February issue’s cover shot. 

I knew what the photo reminded me of but course not being a gardener, I had no clue what the actual subject flower or leaf was.  Apparently, I was not alone as none of our crack Research Team could name it and Ms McAuley wasn’t able to enlighten us either.
