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
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

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.
