Black Locust, is flowering in abundance these days. A member of the legume family, it has abundant clusters (racemes really) of creamy white, delicately scented flowers). The dense, hard wood is prized for fence posts, allegedly because it is highly rot resistant. Good quality wood is highly prized for furniture, but rarely found because of boring insects. It is also a popular firewood tree.
