Mystery Tree

Do you know what type of tree this is in my front yard? I’ve been told by neighbors that it’s deciduous and loses all of its leaves in winter. It’s just starting to get delicate little creamy white flowers at the ends of each branch. I’ve never seen anything like it here before. It’s quite lacy and beautiful, and I’d love to know its name!

    I con’t know the name but it grows all over the place here in Denver and loses all in the winter.

    I think you have a California pepper tree. http://allergy.peds.arizona.edu/southwest/trees_shrubs/calpepper.htm

      I think the leaves are more rounded than pepper tree leaves. I guess I’ll know if it gets peppers!
