Nothing like a big volunteer sunflower to plant itself in a pot - thanks to visiting birds.  I love it!  So everyday I look out my kitchen window, I see this growing sunflower.  How perfect is that?  Also in the wine barrel is morning glory, marigolds and licorice plant.  I got a flat of this licorice plant at Safeway and I simply love it!  I've always been drawn to that artemisia gray green color.  It does not need a lot of water and looks great in containers. I am hoping it will make it through the winter.

One note, I have had two birds fly into my kitchen window as I think they were swooping in for seeds.  Fortunately, they were just stunned and flew away.  The perils of glass!
