Pitch a Birdhouse

We picked up this birdhouse mounted on an old potato pitchfork in Pennsylvania. The flowers are perennial balloon flowers. They make a beautiful addition to any garden and come in a variety of colors. Kids will get a kick out of them as they start out as a balloon shape and then split open to form the flower. You can see one that hasn't opened yet about even with the branch the birdhouse is on.
Click on the picture and you'll see the balloons forming .
