Seed Pods Shaped Like Tiny Shrunken Heads
Miss Khan had been making the most of the unseasonal sunshine by doing a spot of gardening when she dug up skull-like objects attached to a stalk.
Not only did they bear a startling resemblance to human heads, they came complete with tiny teeth.
She was so terrified by the unusual discovery that she ran straight to a neighbour's house.
"I was just doing a bit of tidying up when I came across this strange thing," said Nasreem.
"It is so bizarre I just can't get over it."
The mystery has been solved by Dr Ian Rotherham, who directs the Tourism and Environmental Change Research Unit at Sheffield Hallam University.
He said: "Bizarre as it appears it is nothing to worry about. What Nasreem found was a seed head and I think it could be Aquilegia.
"It is more commonly known as Columbine and is perfectly harmless."
