Yes, post the url, and not images themselves, and you may get some
help.

Now, the question is, do you want people to try to identify the plants
from the leaves alone? In many cases this is not possible, but you may
get lucky. Most accurate identifications of plants require flowers. It
also helps a lot if you can say where the plant was growing (in the
wild, under cultivation, what part of the world, etc.)

Or, do you wish for someone to give you the botanical terms used to
describe a given leaf's shape? (dig out the old plant taxonomy and
Botanical Latin books)

Good Luck.
