another mystery tree
On our property there are 9 of these unknown trees, 3 more mature than the others that were probably planted just a year or so ago. Bare in the winter, they are full of white flowers before any leaves appear. Now a few leaves are turning color and falling; when we made an offer on the cabin last November, we saw tiny fruit on the branches. Have no clue as to what it is.
The largest one near our patio, usually filled with birds, seems confused as to what season it is: it recently popped out with a few more flowers, giving me a chance to add that to my sketch.
Browsing in a tree guide, my nearest guess is a Mexican Plum or Rusty Blackhaw.
