So, in my yard there is a mass of shrubbery (picture one). It has a very distinctive three-lobed leaf shape (picture two). There is no extra charge for the abandoned insect carapace (picture three).
The leaves look a bit like some sassafras leaf pictures I've seen, but the plant type seems wrong for what little I know of sassafras. Plus, it seems to grow as an annual weed, whereas I thought sassafras was supposed to be a tree.
The shed skin looks like cicada sort of.
Mulberries share the "mitten"shape off their leaves with those of the sassafrass, but each have "right handed" and "left handed" leaves that this plant seems to lack. ..
