Now that would be a typical Wikipedia thing, if I may suggest so:
The buds of a shrub, therefore.

I saw one yesterday; he was four years old; his cape was red satin and lined w. silver sequins. On the back was large gold fleur-de-lis. He was crying and wanted a Mars bar. Apparently the pre-school play had been too much. (His mom bought an apple.)

Capers are delicious in potato salad; boiled, unpeeled cubed new potatoes, raspberry vinaigrette, a few fresh or frozen raspberries and some capers and dill.

Wow. My taste buds are unable to process the thought of raspberries, capers and dill in combination.

Bag the dill. The rest is simple and delicious.

White sea bass with Capers, I used to order at this Italian Restaurant in La Mesa CA until it changed owners. Man it was delicious.
