The flower of the Pipevine (Aristolochia watsonii) plant is unusual. It doesn't look so much like a flower as it does a strange funnel. Or maybe a bug's ear.

We didn't find any flowers, but we think these two faint reddish dots are eggs of the Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly. See this post for more on their life cycle.
