Divine vegetation in tutor’s garden
A GARDENER had a revelation when he dug up his asparagus plant and saw the face of Jesus.
Martin Gregory was enjoying his Sunday morning gardening when he noticed something quite different about one of his asparagus ferns he removed from a pot.
As the 52-year-old laid the 30-inch plant on the grass the sun shone down on the roots and revealed the face of Jesus to him.
The part-time mosaic tutor said: "I thought Good gracious! It's the face of Jesus.
"It's the most weird thing I have ever seen.
"The roots are fantastic. You can actually make out a thorn crown around his head, his eyes and nose.
"I've heard about Mother Theresa's face being seen in a bagel but I thought this was much better."
