We have a wren that frequently visits the barrel BBQ so we put fat balls there for it. 3 sunflower seedlings bravely tried to grow in the ashes of the BBQ and were rescued and planted. They have grown to about 3 foot and the first one has just come into flower and is being appreciated by the local wildlife
