inflorescence--do you see the gingerbread man?  Also, do you see how each petal is notched? leaves--these leaves are simple, but are highly dissected (leaves such as this are called pinnatifid).  Because they appear bipinnately compound, but are actually simple, they are called bipinnatifid (and thus the specific epithet, bipinnatifida)
