(2 photos) Yesterday’s epic hike was (amazingly) not rained out.  It was energizing weather, with temperatures only a few degrees above zero, and chilly winds.   Does anyone know if these trees are wild plums?

Serviceberries I think is the common name, some species of Amelanchier.

I’ll second serviceberry. I have a clump of downy serviceberry (Amelanchier arborea) in my back yard that’s in bloom right now, and it looks very much like these.

The berries that develop are edible and delicious; however, the birds and (damn) squirrels usually get them before I do. But, I did plant it to attract birds, so I shouldn’t complain.

As always, love your pics.
