bilby commented on the word fairy food
"Others, again, are sometimes red inside, perfused with a beautiful blush, fairy food, too beautiful to eat,-- apple of the Hesperides, apple of the evening sky! But like shells and pebbles on the sea-shore, they must be seen as they sparkle amid the withering leaves in some dell in the woods, in the autumnal air, or as they lie in the wet grass, and not when they have wilted and faded in the house." - 'Wild Apples', Henry David Thoreau.
