Hoping for help with identifying this tree

I was hoping maybe someone here can help with identifying this tree. Now in full bloom, it looks like picture #1 and a close-up of the leaves look like picture #2. And I think that I have one with no leaves on it if that would help. We have searched all over the Internet trying to find out what it is with no luck. So any assistance would be greatly appreciated. We love the tree and want to know what it is so we know how to take care of it.

Thanking you in advance!!

Sorry I messed up the picture posting the first time and thank you for the guidance!! I think I got it this time. I included a picture of what it looked like in the winter as well. Thanks again! :-)

Thanks so much for allowing me to join and for the warm welcome. I appreciate you letting me know that my pictures failed. I was able to get them up there.

We moved in to a house that used to be owned by a horticulturist. There are things planted here that we are still either discovering or trying to identify. Many have us stumped....most especially this tree. -helpsos- Any help or hints would be appreciated greatly. :D

I am not very talented at identifying species of trees. It kinda looks like a Weeping Mulberry ... Morus Alba Pendula.

With luck, one of our tree people will come along soon and either confirm that ID, or else correct it. :)

OOOOOOhhh.....my boyfriend is going to be soooooo excited that the mystery has been solved! Thank you....thank you.....and did I mention thank you?!?!?! :clap:
:-() We have searched sites for pictures of weeping trees for 2 months and could not find it....and you nailed it in one afternoon! :-)

Yup, I was just about to say Mulberry too.. Mulberry has very specific leaves which you can't really mix up with something else.. at least "I" think so! :)
