Thanks for your help :)

murtie,

Hi, sorry to tell you that no, this does not appear to be a Currant bush. I tried to upload a picture of one of my leaves but Imageshack is acting up at the moment. :cry:

The leaves on my bush have an outline that resembles a Maple leaf and definitely are not serrated. Furthermore, Currants grow in clusters that have many more individual fruits. I have pictures of these as well and will try to upload them later today.

By the way, Currants finished at least a month ago in my area.
