My son was right...the unknown flower is a viburnum...it's called a viburnum snowball bush! Mystery solved! CORRECTION: It's not a snowball bush. After scanning the actual leaf arrangement (arrangement is probably an incorrect botanical term!!), he was able to tell it's a European Cranberry (Viburnum) bush that is most likely sterile...I'm going to watch the bush to see if it bears fruit. He was telling me they have some old grape vines at the University that he's yet to see fruit on because the birds love it so much. Not sure if this is the case here, but there are loads of birds in our yards and that could be why!!!
