On April Fools' Day, with a nod toward poisson d'avril, I put plastic goldfish in the "fish" soup. (The soup was actually roasted red pepper and fennel, from the new Joy of Cooking, and tasted like summer.) Tonight I noticed that the petals fallen from the tulips nearly match the fish in size and color.

Oh that's hilarious. Did the plastic fish 'go down well'??? {g}

Very well. One guest took hers home - I offered a plastic bag of water to carry it in, but she decided that she'd rather not have the water in her pocket, and chose just to wrap her fish in the plain bag. Hope it got enough oxygen... or pocket lint... or whatever it needed.
