This bush is about 4 feet tall, and is growing in the shade. It's berries are hard like barberries and we found them in June. They may have started in May. We didn't see the flowers. The berries seem always to be in pairs. Any ideas?

Maybe this one: Lonicera canadensis (Fly Honeysuckle)

Definitely a Honeysuckle species - Lonicera sp. - with the pposite arrangement of simple foliage on this woody shrub

Definitely NOT a Barberry of any sort; they will have alternate arrangement.
