It's actually a mock cherry. The fruit isn't edible, but the blossoms are gorgeous in the spring. I like to think it is putting on its best and brightest colors for Mother's Day.
Now if you look closely, in the shade at the base of the tree, slightly to the right of the railroad ties, you'll see a little visitor. She's not one of our pets, but she seems to know that our yard is a safe place for bunnies.
