Ode to the Fiddle Leaf Fig




via

Oh, fiddle leaf fig... how I adore thee.




I admire your unique, sculptural beauty.




Your lush green leaves are incredibly charming.





Your natural allure is quite disarming.




You grace the rooms of many a stylish home.




I knew I wanted you for my own.

I searched for you at nurseries, big box stores and the internet.




But, finding you nowhere, I began to fret.

Then one fateful day, I squealed with delight...


via


When at a local nursery you came into sight.




So happy to find you, I knew just what to do.

I said "what the heck," and came home with two.




I've professed my love for you, and I haven't been shy.




So do me a favor, and please don't die!!
