Snake Gourds Attack

He shrieks for help! The crop has turned on its grower! Or at least that is what he wanted to pretend. At their home in Missouri, Adam Long and his subject had fun with their first crop of aptly named snake gourds. I was relieved to find they’re only plants.

Thank you CU photographer Adam Long for submitting your photo this week. See more fun snake gourd attack pictures in Adam’s Suburban Garden gallery.   

Don’t forget to keep uploading photos to our CU photo-sharing site for a chance to featured on the home page, or even in the magazine. There were some great photos this week!
