Roundtown

South of Columbus, aka "Cowtown," is another Ohio town with an alias. You may have heard of it by its official name, Circleville, but it also goes by the moniker "Roundtown." Circleville's main claim to fame, before it became known to birders as Ground Zero for the Black Rail, is the annual Pumpkin Show.

Roundtown residents surely must love their squash. In a nod to Bill of the Birds, here is the biggest pumpkin I have ever seen.

I love water towers taking the form of veggies or fruits. There is a wonderful giant peach in upstate SC which always reminds me of "James and the Giant Peach."
