figs have always been a mysterious fruit to me... captivating and absolutely beautiful. thus, you can imagine my excitement to try one. as i bit into my first taste of fig, i felt like i'd been stood up. they were slightly bland and almost tasted 'off,' like they should have been sweet like honey, but instead they.. well, they weren't sweet like honey. i wouldn't even use the word 'sweet' to describe them. however, my let-down was all forgiven after i took some photos of them. really.. who cares what they taste like when they look so gorgeous?
