Mystery Tree ID'd

A few years back, a sapling took root out front by the Japanese maples and rhodie patch.  I let it live, figuring it was okay there and might contribute more shade for the rhodies.  But I never had figured out what kind of tree it was.
 
Until yesterday.  It bloomed for the first time, so I sauntered over for a closer look.  What I found was a shocker.  After three failed attempts to get cherry trees going on that side of the house, I now had TWO, going gangbusters!  Turns out the other tree I discovered last year when I took out the rhodie killed by the freeze a few years back is also a cherry tree!
 


The tree growing out of the rhodie patch has a lot of fruit on it this year
