Yard wildflowers & one ID please

Wildflowers abounding now and Violets are peaking all over our yard. Wild Geraniums at their usual place at the back of our property.

Also don't remember seeing this new flowering shrub type before at the back edge of our property. Anyone know what it is?

Beautiful shots of the violets and geraniums, Russ!

And, the white flower "looks" like false Lily of the Valley... but you said it was a shrub-type thing...so it's probably not that.

How big is the shrub? And, size of leaves? Looks like 5 petals per flower?

Possible baneberry but I think they are later in June?

Nice flower shots!. I think the mystery species is either choke cherry or black cherry. Shrub size would suggest choke cherry.
