What is this bush/shrub/flowering hedge

Morris, IL(Zone 5b)

I was curious if anyone could tell me what this is. It has pink/reddish blooms with 5 petals. It is not blooming yet but I opened one of the buds. If I remember correctly it was an April bloomer. The leaves are tiny and almost like a rose leaf but not quite they are more rounded. The branches are woody and do not have any spikes or thorns they are nice and smooth. I did not realize I had five pictures and can post some close-ups of the buds, branches and leaves if needs be. Thank you in advance

I have met plenty of nice folks. I have already done a few trades. I do love it here. I had been working two jobs and now down to one so this year I was determined to take that time and put it to good use in the yard and garden. I have been so lucky to find so many great things to add to that project!
