These pictures are of a bush that we have on our farm. We are in the Black Hills of South Dakota so it gets pretty cold here. It has white flowers, very fragrant and very thorny. About 10-12 feet tall. We don’t have a lot of it, but I love the wood!

Could be black locust or false acacia. The flowers are in pendant clusters and have a penetratingly sweet scent. It thrives in poor soil. If that’s what it is!

If it has BIG nasty thorns on the trunk, I’d vote for locust ( can’t remember which is honey and which is black locust but I’d love to have some of that! Bring some when you come visit me and I’ll swap you some tiger bamboo. I just reread your post. I missed the “bushes” part the first time. Our locusts are trees but these could be babies?

Not quite sure, I would guess locust tree. I must be hungry at first the pictures looked like bacon to me.
