Is it just me or do polka dots provide a little burst of instant happiness? As if fruit wasn’t delightful enough, these little beauties also have spunk and style — particularly that dragon fruit. Being a slightly freckly girl though, I must admit I’m a bit partial to the tender kiss of those apple spots.

I was so inspired by these sassy dots this weekend that I wrote this short haiku. I would love to hear what inspires you. Fruit or otherwise…

Feeding my belly
My heart hungers for beauty
Pause and quench your thirsts

Exploring Fruit is a series where I explore what fruit has to offer the world in terms of design, in addition to the snacking aspect that I usually highlight. The series has just begun. If you want to explore more follow these links to explore fruit colors, fruit shapes, and fruit patterns.
