Eye Candy Friday November 6, 2009 Eye Candy Friday I don’t know what this little plant is and, frankly, I never noticed it until it turned bright red this week. Aren’t the leaves so cool? Have a fantastic weekend!

The spots look like they’re painted on in gold leaf. Seriously cool. The marks on the leaves are sort of like a lace pattern… Love the color and the spots that look like seeds. Someone will know what it is. The leaves look like butterfly wings. I kind of want a sweater in those colors now. You knew I would ask, didn’t you. Actually, once I considered it in greens, it reminds me of a plant I have often seen clustered with others in dish gardens from the florist. Cool leaves. Glad you still have some color to enjoy. Have wonderful fun this weekend! Very cool. I like the spot pattern on the leaves. The spots on those leaves are really neat. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is that they remind me of. Have a good one. This plant reminds me of the “MONEY PLANT” Lunaria annua. The leaves on the money plant are round, off-white, very thin and see-through and have many seeds inside that you can easily see through the flesh of the leaf. That’s what this one reminds me of! GREAT SHOT!!! Pretty! Happy Friday and thanks for sharing the beautiful leaves of New England with me. Very interesting! The spots are probably much harder to see when the leaves are green. I’m with Gale: they do remind me of butterfly wings. Cool plant, it does look like butterfly wings 🙂 Nice picture…and what a cool looking plant! Have a great weekend. I can just picture this being used in a Batik fabric – very interesting (and pretty) So cool! Happy Weekend, my friend. I think it is a “Smoke plant” Cotinus I think is the spelling of its Genus name. They come in green and red varieties and the flowers are very small and ‘smoky’ looking hence the name. I have a deep red/orange variety here and a red/greenish in Oklahoma. Gosh yes. They are painted so exquisitely. Love the detail! pretty little leaves. reminds me of the way ladybugs have spots.
