Thanks Laura! Sadly the blossoms are long gone but they were pretty while they lasted. :-)

Sounds like a great idea. I'm an untrained horticulturalist, worked within the industry for 10 years, have a passion for plants and learning all the time

It's hard to tell--they look so much the same. I'll make the correction. I'm going to go to the nature conservancy near my house and ask them for a map of the plants in the parks surrounding where I live.

Think this is another ornamental cherry Stanks but not 100% sure if it's serrulata.
