more walk about/peach tree talk

my poor peach tree has the bad case of leaf curl, I might have to chop it down as I read about the treatments and it si too extensive and iffy to waste time or money, I read that red haven is one that is resistant so I will be getting a couple in the late summer early fall.  this really sucks after seeing such pretty flowers. I think it’s roots may hve hit a water pocket underground and is just to wet, makes sense it is a bit wetter on that side then the south side of my house. did get a couple of apple trees tho planted them last week. a yellow delicious and a gala. yummy. maybe i will post some pictures of them.

anyway here are some more pictures I took yesterday, anyone know what kind of bush this is? the flowers are softly sweet and it gets red berries on it and I love it, let me guess it is not native isnt it?
