The character at the top of this post calls herself Madam Falling Leaf, and she is especially close to my heart since I call myself TLLG, an abbreviation for The Last Leaf Gardener, a name based on the O'Henry story, The Last Leaf.
Madam Falling Leaf's sudden appearance startled Humpty Dumpty — a permanent resident in my indoor succulent garden — as you might surmise from the picture below.
As the matter of fact, Mr. Moon-In-The-Man seemed truly to enjoy joking with Claudia and Lord Claude Crow as evidenced by the photo posted directly below.
And this past November 8th, I featured her on tumblr to give her some press about her cause as a spokes-crow when she was advocating against the American idiom, Eat Crow.
Today Claudia was joined by her beau, Lord Claude Crow, who ultimately enjoyed an opportunity to flaunt his threads as seen in pictures below.
And this brings me to the conclusion of my update/post re happenings in my indoor succulent garden; as for my outdoor garden, everything is still thriving.
I have red roses that are continuing to bloom; the foliage on my Tree Peony and Smoke Bush have become an awesome color of mauve, burnt orange and red (no photo-ops yet). The leaves that are left on my kiwi vines have turned an awesome yellow, but for the most part, the vines' branches are bare, showcasing their twisting and turning shape which the birds that visit my garden are enjoying.
