Seedlings 2

As I stated in a previous post it can be quite difficult to determine the species of seedlings. I had to wait a long time before I was sure what these were.

Next time I should remember to put something in the picture for scale. Now it's not possible to see that the older seedlings are much bigger than the young ones.

It took me almost a month to be sure that this seedling was a maple tree, most likely Acer Pseudoplatanus. This is how it looks in it's natural environment at the train station. If the gardeners wouldn't weed them we would get a nice (crypto-) forest here in a few years:
