Apologies for the bad pictures.  This tree is on my new land.  The flowers are very sweet smelling.  No idea what it is.

I think the flowers look like pear blossoms, but what kind of pear I have no idea.

Thanks James.  I hope you're right.  I haven't seen the remnants of pears under it like I do my apple trees, but the tree is still pretty small.  I guess I'll see what happens in a month or so with it.

what i can see of the twigs makes me think something in the prunus genus. wild cherry or plum.

Greg, i do have wild plum on my land.  The others I have seen are super thorny, but maybe this variety is less so.

I'd agree with Greg, based on the bark.
