An optimist.

Is it a beetle leaf?

The light on two front leaves exposes the fresh innocence. So the Optimist title suits it. :)

I must admit I don´t know the name of the plant. Maybe our reader Mika can help us?

The name Optimist refers to this plants persistance to grow something new even if the winter is right behind the corner :).

Hey! Sorry to comment on this so late (I have been busy)!

This plant is in finnish kanukka and in english Dogwood. There are a few Dogwood species cultivated in Finland, but their leaves are looking allmost the same.
