Wall of Death

We have a nine-foot retaining wall in our backyard. It's big and scary and makes me nervous for tiny tots who might take a tumble.

See? Can you see how far that is? I almost threw up taking that picture.

One of my favorite little boys almost fell to his death last Friday. It was time to do something about that wall. So what to do? Dave suggested a barbed or hotwire fence as a cheap, effective solution, but I decided on something a bit more humane.

Like, a wall of thorns! Awesome!

Dave and I planted Barberries in hopes they will grow quickly to form a thorny, formidable fence. Plus, they look sort of pretty.
