Well, I was just talking about that clump of trees on the south lot - just scrub trees really.

Anyway, one has started blossoming - I didn't know it had blossoms; never seen it do that before . . .

Making a brave attempt at guessing here. Maybe a lilac? Does it have any fragrance to it?

Oh, a lilac - well the flower is almost like a lilac and the leaves aren't that far off either.

The black berry tree? I think that's the closest.

Robins, Weezie . . . oh, yeah - robins do hang out there. Skitter is right on it too - heh! heh! I have to chase them away. The only time I can enjoy my robin flocks is when Skitter is in after 4 pm. That's her curfew.

Last year a whole flock of robins descended on our yard - it was wonderful - my pictures were awful.

And yeah - I'm going to smell them and I'm going to watch for the berry.

Thanks, gals - you're always there for me.

Hey, Football!

I think you're right - that picture looks just like it - I had a good eyeball at the wee flowers on those clusters today.

OK - gotta' get a close-up of those and check it out with your link.

Thanks all for your help with this.
