Mosaic Monday

We parked under this pretty tree one day.  I have no idea what it is.  The leaves are very softly colored - and fuzzy to the touch.






Mosaics are made on ipiccy.com and fotor.com

Love the colour of the leaves and soft to touch, hmm they have the shape of a Maple, but I just don't know.

Gayle said...

Gorgeous!! I've never seen one with fuzzy leaves before. I'd say a maple of some kind.

hello, it is a pretty tree, I like the fuzzy looking leaves. Great images ands mosaics. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

It is a lovely tree, but since I am no expert on flower or trees I would never hazard a guess as to what it might be. You photos are lovely and inspiring! Wishing you a wonderful day!

Interesting. They are shaped like maples but can't be as they are not paired. California Sycamore has palmate leaves like that but I don't know if they are fuzzy. White popular (or silver poplar) leaves seem to be fuzzy but not as deeply cut. My daughter in Oregon is the tree expert.

I think it's a Silver or Whiye Poplar, as Julie mentioned - Populus alba. It's got leaves that usually look like a maple leaf in shape, but are quite variable. The underside of the leaves are fuzzy white. We get them around here in small patches where pioneers established their cabins. You can often find these, along with Lilacs and Day Lilies marking the spot, even if there's no evidence of a cabin left. They tend to spread into a clump because new little tress come up from the roots.

Many times your photos make me wish I had quilting "background" fabric of the same. This one has got to be the best ever! Lovely green-grey with such subtle beauty and interesting texture!

Beautiful photos JoAnn. It's amazing what we can see if we look at the detail isn't it? Gillian at CountryGardenUK.com

JoAnn, you are very good with your camera. I love the barn photos and the dolls are adorable. So I know you can sew also. :):) Blessings, xoxo,Susie

What a unique leaf...almost looks like frost on the leaves.

Mary said...

At first I thought, wished, you were under my fig tree from the leaf shape, LOL! But they are greener, crisper, and definitely not fuzzy! Looked in my tree book and online but not sure what this one is - but it's pretty.

The leaves are pretty, almost frost covered in appearance. I can't help you with ID as my books are only for Ontario and although Silver Poplar was mentioned it is in my book but the leaves are more of a blunt shape.
If all else fails, try sending a photo to your local extension agent or do you have Master Gardeners like we do in Canada?
Another blogger yet may recognize the leaves right away.
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday JoAnn.

How pretty and soft. It's fun to see what grows there...so different from the trees here. I hope the weather has been nice today. We've had good weather with none of the rain from the storm. Enjoy your afternoon! Sweet hugs, Diane

It looks like a silver maple tree. It's a pretty one and very healthy looking. Makes for a lovely mosaic.

I had no idea what this tree was, but I found it very interesting to see, and then to read others comments to find out about it. Thank for that! I am counting it as my what I learned today! xx

There is an app for IPhones called Leaf Snap. You take a picture of the leaf and they tell you what it is.
I have used it a couple times with great success.

Kay said...

I think I've seen this kind of tree before. It looks almost like it's covered with frost. (Oh, I see now that others have said the same thing!) Very pretty!

Rowan said...

The leaves are a lovely shape and a beautiful soft green. Like others I think they look almost as though they are edged with frost.

Beautiful tree and the leaves make me want to reach out and touch them.
