Kolkwitzia?

RE: ID for pink flowering plant please.

Kolkwitzia would have blossoms with a kind of lips, I think that's not it.

It looks a little bit like a Prunus triloba, but the leaves should have a serrated edge.

There are some other species/ cultivars similar to it, sorry, cant remember a name.

What is the bark like of the thicker stems?

Bye, Lin

Prunus glandulosa perhaps. Flowering Almond.

I second "flowering almond"!

Thank you all, again.
It looks very much like flowering almond.
I don't have photo of the bark/stems, it grows by the property line (a neglected property...). It looks like a small shrub and there is quite a few, mostly small, there.
Another photo I have is just another branch/young plant.
