Black-and-white image of leaves attached to a stem, over a white background. There are several stems connected to the main stem, and the stems and leaves are covered in a fine fuzz. The leaves are curved around a bloom in the center of the top of the stem, and the leaves in the right side of the image are taller than the leaves in the left side of the image.
