Two Mystery Plants/Shrubs
We moved into a house in Northern New York on the outskirts of the Adirondack park last fall, so this spring, I'm running around like a fool trying to figure out what all the plants are. I think we have a wild lilac bush growing in the backyard (see my first pic).
But in that tangle of a bush, I've found two other soon-to-flower plants, and I'm not sure what they are. One has long conical groups of buds forming--looks like the flowers will be white (see pic of Mystery Plant 1). The other has a round clump of flower buds--also looks like they'll be white. It also has some pretty long thorns on it. (See pics of Mystery Plant 2).
Mystery Plant 1:
Mystery Plant 2 Buds:
Mystery Plant 2 Leaves:
Mystery Plant 2 Thorns:
Any help identifying these would be much appreciated!
