Lots of leaves

Very short post tonight, the photos pretty much speak for themselves. The chrysanthemums have bloomed nicely, and now the leaves are starting to grow. I'm stitching all the leaves in the same way with flat silk and just varying the angle so the light catches them differently.
The leaf veins are stitched with a couched thread. I am still debating whether to put veins on the smaller leaves, they are not very big, perhaps I will just put a centre vein in.
