Needs a name

It's picture day!

I was given this shrub several years ago and I've lost the name. Any ideas before I go off to Name that plant? The canes turn a reddish color and it has a light scent.

(The apple tree is in bloom behind the shrub).

RE: Needs a name

The close-up is a bit out of focus, so I am not sure, but I think it's a dogwood shrub. Opposite branching and the leaf scar looks like it circles the twig. If the leaf veins run up towards the tip of the leaf, it's definitely a dogwood.

RE: Needs a name

Yes the veins run upward. Thank you!
