More autumn leaves
Further to my posting of 26th October, here are some more autumn leaves. In photo 1 there is one large PLANE leaf contrasting with NORWAY MAPLE leaves and one cherry leaf (the small green one).
Photo 2 has a PLANE next to smalller, finely divided SILVER MAPLE leaves.
Golden brown BEECH leaves are slow to rot down and can suppress plants trying to grow below beech trees.
Photo 4 shows golden yellow ASPEN leaves, almost round and with scalloped edges
Lastly here are the heart-shaped leaves of SMALL-LEAVED LIME, still on the tree.
An extra identifier for lime is this small bunch of seed-containing fruits attached to a leaf-like bract, now all turned brown.
