Today's stitch at Sunday Stitch School is Leaf Stitch.
Although I have seen several instructions in books, the best one is over at Kimberly Quimet. Her photos are far better than mine, but I will add these anyway.
Mattia tells me the French name is, Point de Fueilla.
The Leaf Stitch is basically a cross worked in the order of 1-2-3-4, as shown below.
After that you just go on.
2) a sprinkling of leaves on the Sunday Stitch School sampler, if you please,
3) brighten up this wet asphalt with some fallen leaves
