If you haven't noticed I have a special place in my heart for whimsy, particularly when it comes to plants. I found these guys today while I was trolling around the web (seriously, can one do anything besides troll when they're on the internet?) and they're soo soo cute. Called Plant-Me Pets, these little guys are made of natural latex rubber and their eyes are made from seeds. They can hang out on your desk and when you get bored. Ploomp! Plant them in the ground by burying them head first (seems a bit wrong doesn't it?). Add some sun, water and voila! The rubber will decompose, the seeds will sprout and you'll have a plant in no time. Available in three varieties (cantaloupe, tomato and pumpkin) for $20 each.
