Red buds

We found this while out in the spot of sunshine we had for an hour or so this afternoon, foraging for photos. It’s not a redbud, but what is it?

Some kind of ornamental shrub, probably from Asia?

    Wasting more time…it’s quince, I think. We had it in Ashland, loads of it, a great harbinger of spring. Always brightened my late Feb/early March, gave me hope that warmer weather was a’coming. My friend Angela, a landscaper, called it quince, which I think, if not native, was brought over in late 18th c., popular in mid-19th c. Its fruit is edible, though I never tried it. Birds like it, though. Forsythia can’t be far behind…
