Face of Jesus Discovered in Asparagus Plant

A gardner in the UK dug up this 30 inch Asparagus plant which he claims is the face of Jesus. Full Story
Call it divine intervention or just an interesting coincidence, but what better way to kick off the Asparagus Festival in May's Lick Kentucky this weekend than showing off this discovery (pictured left) of what the gardner who unearthed it calls, "The Face of Jesus". The face was discovered earlier this month when the British gardner was moving the plant out of a pot where it had been growing for 10 years.

"It's the most weird thing I have ever seen," said the gardner.

"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."

The 10th Annual Asparagus Festival in May's Lick takes place on Main Street this Saturday, May 20th. Events include art, food, crafts, bed races, and a tractor parade. For information contact 606-763-6823 or
