The last two pictures are of a Vaccinium (blueberry, huckleberry, etc.) of some sort, but I'm not sure which one.

I think the first picture is of a different plant than the last two.

The second and third photos are Symphoricarpus albus.

The first looks like a Ribes, maybe Ribes aureum. EDIT: Acckk, not with opposite leaves though!

Symphoricarpos occidentalis? The leaves of S. albus are very fragile.

Yes, more likely Symphoricarpos occidentalis, from the leaf texture and funnelform flowers (vs. bell-shaped for S. albus).

The slight lobing of leaves seems strange though. Also, stamens and pistil are usually exerted for S. occidentalis but seem to be included on this plant.

If you check all the photos on the links I gave you will see some of the leaves are lobed. I also came across the sites showing pistils protruding, but look at the Herbarium photos, one shows them about at the level of the petals. This could be when the flowers are not fully opened, once the petals have recurved they will show more.

Photo #1 is a really extreme example of lobing.
OK, I'm convinced - Symphoricarpus occidentalis. Thumbs up
