feelin’ fine

I only have one thing on my list this week…because it is HUGE.  Okay, okay, maybe not, HUGE, huge, but the happy it gave me feels REALLY BIG.

 

FIDDLE LEAF FIG

I GOT A FIDDLE LEAF FIG

If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter you already know, but this is what happened:  I was quite absent-mindedly grocery shopping this week and happened to see some hen and chick succulents on the plant clearance table.  I took out my phone to snap a picture to show my husband (I’d love to plant some next year, anyone have any experience with that?) when I noticed another leaf in my shot.  I thought: “Hmm, that leaf shape looks familiar…”  I put my phone away for a closer look.  “That looks like a fiddle leaf fig…”   Could it be?  Now, I am NO green thumb, thats no secret!  This also means my plant knowledge is limited and I couldn’t be ABSOLUTELY sure I was looking at what I thought I was looking at.  Google?  I think so…

The plant was labeled “Lyrata” and sure enough the internet seemed to indicate that YES, it was the SAME THING. I grabbed the nicest one and plunked it right in my cart!

Those leaves!  The shape, and color, I just love them.

Best part?  It was only $9.99.  The hubby was happy about that…he thought I should have bought two!  I think his words were:  “Did you buy two? One to replace this one when you kill it?”

I will NOT kill this plant…

Happy LONG weekend!
