Each year this bush gets excited about Spring and blooms too soon. The tiny red flowers are pretty if they make it out before a freeze. We dug this plant up at an old farmstead and have never been sure of its name. It is next to a Forsythia which also thinks it is spring. The Silver Maple has large buds on it also. The Pin Oak by our bedroom window knows better—not a sign of buds.
NOTE: After conferring with Dan, I am sure the bush is a flowering Quince.
