A few plant IDs please

Here is the album I created to show them,

My grandmothers garden, all trees/plants must be at least 30yo if that helps.

I'm most curious about the twisted branch tree.

Pictures taken 5/23/15, sorry some are blurry. Some of the images are of the same tree.

    the twisted one is probably a twisted willow looking at the branches but i can't make out the leaves, the others i can't see them clearly enough, can you load them at their normal size? i'm sure people will be able to help you then imageimage

    I think there's an Acer grieum in there.

    clearer pics required and we need to know what goes with what; the bark, leaves and flowers if any of a tree all together. Everything works together to ID. Two plants may have similar leaves but they're unlikely to have similar bark, buds and flowers as well.

    Thanks sanjy67, nutcutlet, I will take some new photos tomorrow, this time I'll make sure the focus is on! I'll be sure to show which photos belong together. Thanks again

    Hi Ryarsh, from the top: Daphne--one of the more tricky ones to grow--don't move it or it will die! Could be D. blagayana. Then several photos of Acer griseum. Then an Acer palmatum, then what looks like Viburnum x carlesii; then the twisted hazel, Corylus 'Contorta'. Next is what looks a bit like a large specimen of Prunus incisa 'Kojo no mai'. The evergreen thing below that may be Prunus laurocerasus, but it's hard to tell--it could also be a Pieris specimen. Last are two more shots of the Daphne.
