Strange phenomena

Picked this leaf from Philadelphus Aurea today, and was amazed to see discolouration divided exactly in half!

Top RH leaves half green, half lime; next pair green on left of stem, lime on right; third pair perfectly divided green on one side, yellow on the other. So strange . . . has anyone else experienced this?

Nor me Sheila. There are one or two other 'mixes' on the shrub, but none so precisely as this . .

Fascinating to see something so exact as this produced by nature ( or fairies with small paintbrushes!)

Lol Chris - yes, it is intriguing (I like the idea of fairies with paintbrushes! )
