1. Oh, that's beautiful, CaliforniaPeggy!

It looks just like a painting. I love the creamy yellow color in contrast to the bright red berries. You must have lots of interesting foliage in your yard!

4. Thanks so much, my dear Diamond_Dog!

The colors were what made me want to photograph it.

We do have a lot of interesting foliage in our yard, and I have our landscaper to thank for all of it. She had an eye for color.

2. While beautiful they are extremely toxic.

Nandina berries contain cyanide and other alkaloids that produce highly toxic hydrogen cyanide (HCN) which is extremely poisonous to all animals. Sudden death may be the only sign of cyanide poisoning and death usually comes in minutes to an hour. ... Nandina is also toxic to dogs, cats, and many other animals.

3. I am well aware of their toxicity, but thanks for the timely reminder!

We don't eat them, and we don't have any pets. I did worry about the birds who come through here, but I have never seen them anywhere near the plant.
