Mystery Prunus

This tree (and its little offspring growing near it) is growing in the tree line the runs along the middle of our property.  It’s now fully in bloom and smells amazing.  Susan saw it in either the fall or winter when there were no flowers (or fruit) but said it was something in the prunus family, such as a cherry or plum.  Of course, it will turn out to be plum since we just planted a bunch of plum and are hoping for cherry.  It doesn’t look like any wild plums I’ve ever seen but I’m only familiar with the ones that grew in thickets where we lived in Oklahoma.  Whatever it is, is smells good!

    I love the pictures of the flowers. Wish I could be there to sniff them. Cannot wait to see what fruit appears.

      Ooh, we cannot wait for you to visit and see (in person) all of the changes we’ve made!

      Thanks! That’s what I figured. *pout* At least we’ll get some jam-making goodies this year.

    Well for your sake I hope it’s wild cherry! Beautiful tree. And whatever it is, yes, you’ll get some fruit for jam for sure!
