Spring leaf

The new leaves of spring look fresh and green. Sydney is abundantly planted with the species London Plane (Platanus x hybrida). It tolerates pollution, neglect, vandalism and poor soils and in return it provides plenty of summer shade and in winter a deciduous canopy that allows the sun through. Some people experience allergic reactions to their pollen and fibres in September. Luckily, I don't and I love them!
