Snail leaf

What a beautiful leaf I found today on Balmoral Road.  

An insect must have burrowed into it, and disturbed its growth, so that it grew in a snail's shape. 

My photo doesn't quite do it justice, but the hues of amber and deep khaki gave me plenty of enjoyment as I messed around with watercolour pencils. 

A perfect way to unwind on a Sunday afternoon.
