are figs now trendy?

dang. the luscious fig with it's mauves, purples, ruby reds & many shades of greens is a fruit i've been taken with for some time now (years, not months or weeks). and of course i adore it for its flavor too. they are so great to cook & bake with. i most recently used figs as my inspiration for the decor8 fabulous sationery contest a couple weeks ago. and they are the inspiration for the color theme in my bedroom decor.
i guess sometimes even the most obscure obsessions can become hip. so i shouldn't complain.
i was excited to see that house martin posted some lovely figgy goodness on her blog this week. my two fave photos are below. both are from marie claire idees.
