It's a topper, all right. This is what it looked like in San Diego (on a 3' shrub of it, grown in low light)

In case you didn't know, I was thinking of the song by the same title ( a jazz standard written by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn with lyrics by Johnny Mercer - thank you, Wikipedia) when I titled it thusly.


Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres, amirite?


It's surprising to see it on a small-tree / large-shrubbery Kalanchoe.

Well, I think Julius Caesar would agree with that statement, not sure if it holds up in modern times, though I'm not from Gaul so how would I know?
(thanks Wikipedia)

Careful amigo, you're flippin',
Speaks Latin, that satin doll.
