Hello,

Based on what I see in your last set of images, This is the beginning stage of peach leaf curl. The disease has run its course and
no treatment is effective or necessary. It is caused by yeast which infects the peach leaves as the buds open in the spring. The treatment window is in the early spring when the buds open.


Here are some links to more information about the disease.
