Fuzzy-looking reddish growths on a tree branch

Some sort of…I’m not going to lie, I have no idea what this tree is growing. Last year I remember it having leaves.

Small pale-green round leaves growing close to the ground, just beginning to open.

I’m not sure what these are going to be either. Right now they remind me of those fish in that game where their mouths open and close and you have to get the fishing pole in and hook them at just the right time.

Pinks and blues

4/27/15 Edited to add: My cousin informs me that the peculiar reddish puffball things on the tree are the flowers of a red maple; the magnetic-fish-looking ones are sedum; and the small blue flowers are scilla (though they look to me like the flowers on a vinca vine; maybe they’re related?). Thanks, Anne!
