Thanks to Daveofsky for sending me this smashing photograph of a Loch-Ness-Monster-shaped cucumber.

“I found this fellow relaxing in my cucumber plot. What could he be?”

He asks.

Hmm… Is it Nessie or is it a cucumber viper, rearing to strike – if vipers don’t strike, I’m sure somebody will enlighten me..? Notice the mouth, it looks like a glove puppet. Is there somebody’s hand in there? Perhaps it escaped from Children’s TV.

I am especially appreciative of the way he has added the little eyes, for extra effect… it’s creative flourishes like this which make the difference!

Top job, David, we thank you!
