Ok, have seen this one before, but I don't know what it is.

Not a willow nor a dogwood. Alders have wider, more rounded leaves.

 

Is it a pussy willow?

Damnit, Swede, now you have me all curious.  LOL  Could you get a close up of the leaves?  I just hacked off a branch from the my pussy willow in the back yard and the leaves look quite similar, as does the form of the shrub.

I think the pussy willow has rough surfaced leaves and most willows has long pointed leaves. Im still looking.

I have forwarded your pictures to the naturalist I know at Hartman.  I will let you know what I hear back.

This bush came up naturally in a set aside area probably from a bird or animal dropping. There are a few others scattered about so the parent plant must be near by. This also tells me theres a fruit or seed that is propagated by passing through the digestive system. It almost make me think plum or persimmon.

 

Ill go back there on the four wheeler, its the only way to get there,  and snip off a branch.

I found the seed tree down the hill towards the creek. It was nearly 15 foot tall and had one white flower. The bark was fissured at the base of the tree that resembled Mexican Plum but the leaves were not rough surfaced like a Mexican Plum. It is one of the plums Im pretty sure at this point but so far Im not sure which.
