Silver smiled slightly. The mare was pretty humble about her strength. A Pegasus, as far as Silver knew, was usually less strong from a general point. However, it seems his compliment didn't do what he had hoped, and he'd have to come in at a different angle next time.
Silver stopped as they entered the gardens. He looked around at all of the color, and all the beauty. So many different things to see. So colorful! he hadn't run into anything like this in his past travels. Even in Canterlot, he didn't see their gardens. "After growing up in the Barren Wastland that is the Badlands, This is... a lot of lush, colorful flora." Silver said with a smile, starting to walk once again, if slowly and carefully. It was as if he didn't want to accidentally touch a flower and hurt it in some way.
"Yeah, that is a crazy thing... It seems almost summery here, even if it is in the middle of the Frozen Wastes." Silver said, realizing how odd that was.

"We'll have to make sure to thank the gardeners or something about it. It probably takes a lot of work to keep this up. I sometimes have trouble just keeping the flowerbed in front of my house healthy," she replied, chuckling a little bit.
At least she could fly over the flowers, avoiding the particular issue that Silver was having. Though she had to be really careful about it to make sure she didn't end up crashing into any decorative arches or anything like that.
"Yeah, I think it's the magic of the Crystal Heart or something that keeps the Empire safe from the winter. At least, that's what I was told when they briefed me on my new kingdom," she said, aware of course that the Crystal Empire was not in fact her new kingdom.
"You know, I wonder if we could have the lunch out here in the gardens. It is a really nice day, and the place is so pretty...hold on a moment!"
With that, Derpy left her guest to his own devices as she went to find some staff to give that order to.

Silver chuckled as well. "I haven't even tried." He said simply, smiling at the mare. He found an area with a bit of room before he let his wings start buzzing, slowly lifting himself off the ground and hovering around over the flowers, looking at them from another angle. They were all quite impressive!
Derpy mentioned lunch in the gardens, and Silver smiled. It sounded like a good plan. Of course, he didn't have much of a need for the food, but for the sake of making Derpy feel as comfortable as possible, he'd be as un-changelingy as he could. As for now, he buzzed about for a bit, before finding a nice patch of grass, nice and shaded, that would be plenty of room for the two to sit and eat. He landed softly, and awaited the Pegasus to return patiently.

After making himself comfortable, Silver would soon find Derpy swooping back into the gardens, followed by several Crystal Guards dragging with them a table, two chairs, and a mat. After that were some other staffers with pitchers of water and tea alongside a sandwich platter with some fruits, vegetables, and cheese.
"Uhh, sorry, but they insisted giving the full treatment on it. I also didn't exactly know what to do since, uhhh, you're a Changeling so they brought out the basics. But if you want something other than sandwiches and hoof-foods then just let them know and we can get more," Derpy said, giving out a smile as she settled into one of the chairs now placed comfortably under the shade as all the stuff brought out was made into a delightful little picnic for the two of them.
"Although, to be quite honest, I think I'm rather fine with just some cheese and fruit. These grapes look rather delicious," she said, gently pulling at some of the red grapes and popping them into her mouth, chewing contentedly,"They're really sweet and juicy too."

Silver smiled as the Pegasus returned, and joined her at the table. "I believe this will be more than sufficient. Like I said, we don't gain nourishment from these foods, but we still do like the taste." He took a grape and popped it in his mouth. Smiling wider at the taste, he nodded to Derpy. "You're right, this is fantastic~"
He took an orange from their fruit bowl, and peeled it thoughtfully with his magic. He levitated up one wedge and took a bite out of it, before levitating a second wedge out, and letting it hover a little in front of Derpy, offering her a piece. "Since this was just a glaring sheet of ice until recently, we'll have to ask them how they grow such tasty, juicy fruits. Maybe the Earth Ponies in Ponyville can learn a thing or two." He said with a small chuckle.

Oh, right, she had forgotten that fact. Well, at least he could enjoy the taste of it all, which was the second most important thing about food after the nutrients. And the fruits were really delicious and fresh. It was like she had just stopped by Sweet Apple Acres and picked them herself! Well, if the Apples had let ponies pick stuff. Which they didn't, but at least they always had plenty to sell.
"Oh, I think for now they've been importing while they get everything set up. But, at least how they told me, the Crystal Heart tends to keep the climate here good enough to almost grow fruits year-round so they should be producing their own in no time," she replied.
"The exception is these crystal berries, which are native to the Empire. So enjoy them while you can because gonna be really hard to get them outside of the Empire for a while," she said, popping one into her mouth and happily chewing to emphasize the point.
