ssshhh! it's a gourd!

Is it unlucky to photograph vegetables before they're picked? This one hangs out on the sidewalk side of our fence so I don't know how long it will be around.

My kids found their fetal sonograms this week and were fascinated. This is what summer is for, that and freezing your underpants. I keep finding the pictures around the house, worrying that they'll get lost forever or mixed up so I can't tell who is who. But it doesn't seem like the sonograms were inauspicious.

If you look closely in the picture below, you can see a small gourd developing along with the flower. This goes against everything I know about developing fruits and pollination. Is this immaculate conception?
