Even on the same tree you'll see a variety of shades of green as the leaves age. The second shot illustrates this with some Robinia leaves where you can see the fresh yellowy green of the new leaves in contrast to the deeper greens of the older ones.
There's textures, different shapes and a huge variety of contrasts in leaves - perhaps more that you realise. Perhaps next time you're out and about take a few moments to look a little more carefully at the leaves as well as the flowers.
The third shot in this post is of some Agapanthus leaves. I can't say I'm a big fan of these plants, but some members of our household are! Even so, the leaves are quite lovely. I was struck by all the lines in the leaves and the range of contrasts between all the leaves.
