    Possibly blackcurrant (Ribes nigrum). Await for green thumbs' confirmations.

    In hindsight, perhaps not as leaves appear different. Sorry!

    Black Hawthorn Crataegus douglasii or close relative.

    More material needed to tell if it is Crataegus douglasii or Crataegus suksdorffii.

    Thank you all...i will try to get thorn and bark pics
    my research suggests that it is the difference in the number of stamens that is a sure way to ID this shrub/tree but i will have to wait till next spring to check this
    thank you again
