Hi Greengage, the Underside of the Leaf is a sliver/white Colour. I Should have taken a Photo of the Underside, and sent it on.

Not Bay Tree? That was my first impression.

I was going by the speckled effect of the leaves to the bottom left, in the first pic.

Summer also said..".the Underside of the Leaf is a sliver/white Colour. I Should have taken a Photo of the Underside, "
See pic of back side of the leaves in this link

Bay tree leaves are plain deep green.
