I noted your description calls it the pink flowering form. Is this a cultivar of the native form, or does it just come by this variation naturally? I thought at first it might be a salmon berry, but the leaves definitely look like a thimbleberry. Pretty.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

The leaves and bloom also resembles Rubus odoratus which has pink/lavender/mauve blooms.
