This shrub and small pink blooms in the spring/summer. Does anyone know the name of it. I will try to find a picture with its blooms. Here's a picture that I have on this laptop.

Yes, that is just what it might be. Thanks Jennifer. I was thinking that but wasn't sure.

I'm not good at comparing photos but it could be: Weigela (Weigela florida)

Redbud comes to mind - Cercis canadensis

I forgot to ask what time of year the photo was taken. The leaves don't look like Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis) to my eyes but then again, my eyes aren't the best anymore. :)

That picture was taken Sept 30, 2014. I can't seem to find a picture of it with blooms. I will keep looking.
