  • "These are primroses," she would say. "Did you not know? And these are ladies'-feet, and these forget-me-nots.

    —Max Beerbohm, The Happy Hypocrite, 1897

    Well primroses and forget-me-nots I know, but I can't find ladies'-foot, lady's-foot, what have you, in the OED. Just below she says that one trailing down so prettily is Astyanax, which sober truth appears to reveal as a genus of fish. Max appears to be pulling the many-belled leg.
