The Day of the Triffids

Earlier in the year Fiona and the kids planted some Snake Gourds. The pack of seeds showed some nice twisty gourds painted all zigg zag and pretty like snakes. That'll be fun.

Our neighbour Jean-Marie called us to show us the gourds.

We hadn't noticed them because they had grown over the wall and were hanging down in his garden.

What the hell is going on? Snake gourds? Bloody Python gourds, Anaconda gourds more like. They've taken over his wall and there's tons of these beasts.

The Minister for phallic references was unavailable for comment.

That looks fabulous. More like a baseball bat than a snake though

OMG! A few months ago that was just a seed? Incredible - it's like Jack and the Beanstalk...

Lord! It reminds me of 'that's life' with Esther Rantzen...remember those 'dear Esther, my husband has a penis shaped like a potato' letters...
