Gee, I thought it was just about some fallen leaves.

Yes, it is very confusing: the planes (sycamores in N. America) belong to the genus Platanus. Outside N. America, sycamore refers to either the Sycamore Maple (Acer pseudoplatanus) or the fig (Ficus sycomorus) which is also known as fig-mulberry but - although its leaves resemble the leaves of the mulberry tree - it has nothing to do with the mulberry tree which belongs to a different family and genus.

I am Greek. The funny thing is that "sykomorea" is an ancient Greek word meaning mullberry-tree or an African kind of fig-tree.

You're welcome. The Americans are not familiar with the names of some animals, flowers, trees etc in the UK English. I have lived in UK and USA, so I act as 'interpreter' now and then between the two Englishes. ;-)

These are leaves of the plane tree. Planes are called sycamores in North America.

I am sorry for my bad English. The leaves are fallen to the ground. It's autumn.
