Maybe Purple Flowering Plum.

This was a neglected tree, probably started after a pit was dropped. I took out a large dying tree a few feet away from this and started watering it. I wanted it to be something special(er) ;-). Reminds me of when I started birding. With my new found enthusiasm, I located species thought to be long extinct and will leave it at that.

Anyhow, this I believe is some sort of fruiting plumb of which there is a larger on another part of the property. Nothing like the two fruitless plums that are not doing so well.

I think that tree is too crooked to be plumb - but it is certainly a Plum (Prunus sp.).

I suspect it is a seedling from a Prunus cerasifera.

Thank you for the reply John. I will better observe this tree during the spring, flowering/fruiting etc. and post back then. My research continues!
