Arboreal hors d'oeuvres

One good malaprop deserves another. From "New flashlights are bright idea", Home & Design column in the Palo Alto Daily News, 12/15/04, p. 49:

We were on vacation and went on a moonlight walk with our wives at a nearby botanical garden... At the end of trail there was a beautiful opening in the canape and the sky was clear and overflowing with stars.

Hmm... Just what was in those hors d'oeuvres?
