For a while now, I had an eggling sitting on my desk unopened! For those of you who do not know, an eggling is a ceramic egg that is filled with seeds. True to its name, all you need to do is crack the egg open, fill it with water, and hope that it grows! This type of plant is quite popular in Japan! I had completely forgotten about my eggling until my sister showed me her's! We decided to grow our flowers at the same time. 

Eggling Packaging
On the left is my eggling and on the right is my sister's! Although the packaging looks similar, we have different flowers. I planted daisies and she planted petunias! Of course, we could've just planted these flowers and left them out to grow. However, we decided to add a more personal touch and name our plants!

We wrote the names w/ Sharpies
I named my flower "Danger Daisy" and Christie named her's "Petunia Picklebottom". I know, Danger Daisy kind of sounds like some edgy scene kid's Myspace user name from 2007. I am also aware the Petunia Picklebottom is the name of a brand, but aren't alliterations fun :]?

I really hope we did this right! We followed the instructions carefully, however, I have never been much of a green thumb. None of plants that I've tried to grow in the past have been successful. However, I am still remaining hopeful that at least something will sprout!

Look at their cute little faces!
At first, I didn't know what kind of face to draw on my egg. I just wanted it to match with the name. So for Danger Daisy, I drew angry eyebrows, cute eyelashes, and vampire fangs. How fitting for danger! Christie drew happy carrot eyes and a bow tie on her egg. I feel like adding faces to the eggs makes them seem more personal? It doesn't feel like we just added trash to our open windowsill.

They now have personality to them!

Danger Daisy & Petunia Picklebottom getting some sunshine!
I can't wait to see what happens! I'll update you guys on their growth when I get the chance :)!
