At first I thought it was a rose bush but the flowers when open do not look like a rose

Try using for an ID. I've been trying to ID some roses recently, and you need to look at where the thorns are (main stem, smaller branches), the stipules (little leaf-like parts at the base of the leaf stalk), the shape of the thorns, and a few other details! Roses are tough - there are hundreds of them!! I think this is rosa rugosa.
