ID the Tree?
Well, you all were so absolutely amazing at immediately identifying the lamium in my front yard, I thought I'd give you another challenge.
We have no idea what kind of tree we have in our back yard. Here are a few helping images. Click any to see larger:
We just got blossoms on the tree about a week ago. And the birds and bees LOVE IT. Seriously, it's like chirp and buzz buzz city back there right now.
The flowers/tree smells like...well...it's kind of hard to explain what it smells like. It doesn't smell bad, per se, but it's a very musky raw smell, kind of earthy and slightly sour sweet.
Finally a last "pretty picture" of the tree and the back yard from today.
So help me, oh internets...what sort of tree do we have here?
