Thanks Kathy...new image completely rules out Begonia.


Mentha sp ..mint would fit better with the opposite  serrated leaves.


Try to crush a leaf and smell it.

Please can you try to add a pic Kathy to show the whole plant.


Leaf shape doesn't look right for Begonia


Aren't Begonia  leaves alternate?

Without any gardening knowledge it is almost impossible to id a shrub just from the leaves.


Looks like Hibiscus syriacus...colour of flowers unknown.

Ornamental cherry tree

Sorry but that is not a cherry.  .Prunus.


I cannot see clearly enough but I suspect it is a Cotoneaster sp.


A close up of the berries and leaves might help.

Plant id please

Quote wiki....


Mirabilis jalapa, the marvel of Peru or four o'clock flower, is the most commonly grown ... Flowers then produce a strong, sweet-smelling fragrance throughout the night, then close for good in the morning. New flowers open the following day.

Looks like Populus tremula...aspen.


Do the leaves rustel all the time?

Pick a leaf and roll the stalk between your finger.


If aspen it will not be round but flattened.
