little lilac got stumped

Ordinary garden lilac, Syring vulgaris, only 24 cm high, shohin - as such an extreme rarity. The tree is quite famous and gives me lots of joy. After many years it seemed too leggy and I decided to cut it back. This looks terrible, but it will bring many new shoots much closer to the trunk as one can already see. This should only be done on a very healthy tree.
