We separated leaves from sage, purple shiso (like purple basil), and lemon balm. We tried to arrange them artistically as they grew up the stem. We were able to notice how the leaves changed their shapes as they moved from cotyledons, or first leaves, up through true leaves and onwards up to the flower, itself a metamorphosized leaf form. We ironed our artistic arrangements into wax paper and taped them to our windows.
