    The white wisteria like bloom reminded me of the black locust bloom. I understand it is earlier blooming plant than the common honey locust. However the common honey locust is a much more viciously thorny plant than the black locust which has only a pair of thorns at the base of each leaf. That said check this link and see what you think. http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=ROPS
    And here is some comments from Walter on the common honey locust. http://www.walterreeves.com/gardening-q-and-a/honey-locust-identification/
