This is the Almond Fairy and today is Almond Day.

Almonds are native to the Middle East and South Asia.  They are actually a seed rather than a nut and are relatives of peaches, plums, apricots and other drupes.

In addition to being tasty on their own, they are the basis for marzipan, orgeat, frangipane, moisturizing almond oil, almond butter, almond milk, and of course, the scent of bitter almonds.
