Red Current variety - winter update

Ribus Rubrum, red Currant variety.

This is my smallest ánd oldest 100% selfmade tree, or shrub.
In 1996 I took a cutting from the shrub in my parents' garden.
It has always been grown in pot. Although this species does not produce thick stems/trunks, its current thin 'trunk' is mainly because I've always grown it in (small) pots.
Late pruning of the first flush helps, but I don't expect miracles on this one.
The top left branchlet needed new growth and better ramification so it was pruned back, ready for spring. It's just cute, and a nice memory of my first bonsai attempts.
