I am with Cynthia, they do look like little lotus. And Julie is right on her idenfication of these succulents as Echeveria Perle von Nurnberg. What a beautiful planting of them. And your photos are wonderful! You composition and framing in your 1st shot is perfect and I love the angle in the second. This is my 1st Cactus Monday and I am looking forward to making new friends. HCM!
