Here's what a leaf looks like. These leaves average about 5 to 8 inches in length.
When you scratch the surface of this leaf, it leaves a contrasting mark. We all used bamboo skewers, although Lois recommends a #3 knitting needle.
Scratching these leaves released a fragrance which, combined with a bit of imagination, let you think you were in Hawaii. Here are some examples of the fun we had.
It's interesting to see how many people (us included) used the tangle flux, which is resonant of this leaf's shape!
Here's how they look when dry.
Thanks again to Lois and Earl - great fun and great memories!
