Hello

 

I have found plenty of these leaves in my area and i wanted to ask your opinion on whether this is safe to eat. 

 

I have attached some pictures for 5 different leaves.

 

Please let me know which one is safe by specifying the picture number please. I have numbered the 5 f them (photo #1, photo #2, photo #3, photo #4, photo #5).

 

Thank you very much

 

Sabina
