A Leaf Quiz

The first day of November is cool and breezy. With sun and blue sky it still feels like much of October, except many more trees have dropped leaves and are bare. Our thoughts turn to leaves as we shuffle through ever deeper layers of leaves on woodland trails and as leaves cover our lawns. It is leaf raking time (as opposed to leaf blowing please!).

With so many leaves blowing about in the wind, it seems like a good day for a leaf quiz. Here are leaves of ten common hardwood trees or shrubs that grow around here (New England and beyond).  What are they? Answers tomorrow.
