Shows you how much I know, I can't tell the difference between a tree and a shrub

Here's a picture of both shrubs.

Hi guys,

I've recently inherited a garden and I need to identify a couple of plants. One is a tree that is blossoming now and producing some gorgeous flowers and another is a shrub (I think) that produced lovely red flowers earlier in the spring but has now produced what looks like a green fruit of some kind but I'm not sure if it's edible.

Could you have a look at the photos and tell me what you think?

Thanks for all the tips. As I live in the Netherlands I can't rely on charity shops as they don't have anywhere near as many here as they do in the UK, however, I can get free delivery from Amazon so I shall keep an eye out for your recommendations. I've recently moved into a house with a huge established garden and I just want to try and identify all the plants as well as start a veggie garden.
