    • Don’t worry! Dame Osier will return. In the meantime, you’re right: un panier d’osier = a wicker basket. A wicker basket is handy, by the way, for collecting fish! But there’s more to it: “Dame Osier” is an anagram of “Osmeridae”–the scientific name for smelt. This makes sense because Dame Osier is the Queen of Smelt (specifically, the Isle of Smelt).
