Did 3 threads come up? DG does it not me! LOL I do like it though, David. It does look like chalk and the white will rub off. Do you have dudleya in Florida? Here they grow wild along the coast. I love the ones with lots of farinaceus frost. Anything different attracts my eye. Some kinds of dudleya are like big white flowers laying on the ground.
