    Looks like a mulberry tree leaf to me.

        Looks like paper mulberry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paper_mulberry

        The pollen is nasty and it's terribly invasive. Apparently it's edible?

          Thanks, Kelby!
          Figs are already super invasive and now you say we have got another one?!
          I will check in the Fall on how it looks. Curious if it's an M of a F

            I have no idea...I just eat the mulberries that the birds and squirrels don't get.

              Paper mulberry is different from the black/red mulberry your eating there, different genus.
