I have been watching this little seedling grow for a few weeks and could not put my finger on what it reminded me of. I just returned after being gone a week, it had really grown. Now I feel pretty sure it is a Sweet Olive, any one have an opinion?

If anyone thinks this is not Sweet Olive (Osmanthus fragrans) let me know, I am going to mark it solved for now.

I get weedy tree seedlings that look like this and I think they are from the Wild Black Cherry (Prunus serotina) tree that's in my yard. The birds like the fruit and spread the seed everywhere.
