Very hard to do when the pics are that small I agree SS
1 could be Viburnum tinus.
How big do they grow Maggie, and when do they flower and what do they look like? There will be some sort of flower even if it's insignificant. A catkin type of flower if Silver surfer is right about 2.
My guess is that1. is evergreen and 2. is deciduous, is that right?
Manner of growth is quite useful for ID and a pic of a complete shrub could help. Particularly as we can only get tiny images here right now.
