I really like the colour of this Berberis and as for that little statue, she is very sweet indeed!

Love the colour alongside the pot and the bricks. Very clever.

brings back a memory of my youth... a friend had a barberry hedge she wanted removed as it was too near the entrance...she told me I could have it if I was willing to dig it out for her. There's a sucker born every minute, according to Mr. Barnum... the spines pierce the skin and break off... leaving a festering sore. It was a horribly hot day and I wore a halter top and cutoffs... I got a sunburn on top of the piercing spines in my forearms, fingers and palms... (gloves are for sissies) Berberis is so pretty and it is beautifully presented in your lovely terra cotta... I think that's the reason I've never had it in my garden since. Yours is lovely, but I'm still not tempted. lol...
