Up Close on spring buds

I noticed these buds in the health centre’s garden this morning and had my little point and shoot with me. They were low enough to shelter from the breeze, so worth trying a close up. Judging from the one that’s about to unfold, I’d say it could be sycamore, does anyone know?

I would love to be able to take real macros with a powerful lens, but I can still have fun even with my phone. This is my last post for Jude’s April garden challenge, with the theme of macro or close up, and I’ve really enjoyed it.
