Jealous!! My garden is a dirt patch now.
Great pics! Say, do you know that that succulent in the gnome photo is?
The one with the long thin fingers is a South African named Cotyledon orbiculata var longifolium. It's one of my favorite plants and I can send you a piece or two if you're interested. It's very easy to grow and propagate and does well in pots. For some reason it's not widely available. It can get a little rugged looking, I guess. Might be a hard sell at a nursery. Mine all came from my grandfather's garden.The flower is my favorite on any succulent. Here is a picture of the same plant with a different leaf shape at the San Francisco Botanical Garden: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3158/2847025406_034783e02f_b.jpg
Here's another picture. I love the way it looks in pots.http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2232/2331795468_919d6befd4.jpg
