Here is a work of three fallen leaves. The top leaf is from a Tulip Tree and the other two are from the Sweet Gum Tree. Both trees are native to Virginia. If you have them in your yard, both have very interesting seed pods. But watch out for the round Sweet Gum pods as they can easily trip you up as you mow the lawn.
