Part of a definition of a leaf would likely be that it is broad, flat, and green. This could be expanded to mention that a leaf consists of a blade and a petiole, that it sometimes has stipules at the base, and that it has a bud in the axil between the petiole and the stem (unless the leaf is sessile, that is, lacking a petiole).
