Yeah. I have a love affair with plants. I am not so sure that my love is reciprocated. But lately, fiddle leaf fig trees have been all over the design world and I had to have one. (No, Alma, there's no figs on these trees...)
I emailed my garden center a few months ago and they had one in stock. It was badly sun-damaged, and I honestly wasn't sure the tree wouldn't take one look at me and just rattle it's last breath right there on the spot...but I gave it a shot.
So this baby came home with momma.
Amid dire predictions from friends and family and doubtful looks at the sun-damaged leaves, I persisted. And just yesterday I noticed my baby is growing. There are 3 new fig leaves sprouting up!!!
Here she is in all her glory... You can see she's lost a lot of leaves and there are still a couple damaged leaves bravely hanging in there... But this one, she's a fighter. And she's already won my heart.
And wow, these are like the worst iPhone pictures ever. I have got to get me a new camera. Any recommendations?
