Serviceberry rust(s)

I have some rust(s?) on my serviceberry (presumed a seedling A. canadensis) I thought were worth sharing.

I think this is Quince rust. I’ve seen it a lot this year.

Maybe Serviceberry rust? Swollen twig and misshapen leaves.

I’ve heard they are seceptable to cedar-Apple rust

I’ve not seen it here, but did a few years back in Traverse City.

I’ve seen the former around here, especially on the ones in shady spots. Orange crust on mummy berries.

Did you join the mob for the annual cherry festival ? Going to be a nightmare as they are having it this weekend ( the weekend of the forth of July) this year !
BTW the serviceberries get a lot of blight around here many years.

I actually went for 4 days to get CPR, AED and first aid certified. I was on a strict timeline and had I not driven the 4+hours there I would have had to take 3 more classes to complete my teaching certification.

Reading/literature classes when I already had a BA/BS (literature/mathematics)

I was there the week before cherry festival and being a gardener I wanted to visit a cherry farm, but the cherries weren’t ripe yet and they were all too busy for visitors. Looking back it was probably more than a decade ago at this point

I found a lot of bright orange spots on both the leaves and the berries (Serviceberry) in the middle of May. I guess this is the only one I foto’d. The others were plain; this looks like an alien creature.
