Charlotte Among Succulents

First a couple of turtles at the lake this morning.
Then these lush succulents in a wooden crate, which D and H gave me last night.  These things are not native to the NC mountains;  but when we lived in NO in the 70s we would find them happily growing in pavement cracks.
Our friend J would arrive with a pocket full of tiny alligator jaws that she hadswept  off the leaf edges of a mother plant, and we would sprinkle them in our front porch pots.
Of course a charlotte looks oddly tropical in this dish garden.  I am curious to discover what ideas sprout.
