Graptopetalum paraguayense (or plants of the urchin's lair).
Urchins are voracious readers, too. They anticipate the mail delivery. More than that, they scheme and plot about our inerrant postal service. Once the mail has arrived, and after a few apotropaic gestures, they pounce. Even colorful gimcrack is sought out to read.
Graptopetalum paraguayense (Sedum weinbergii, Ghost Plant, Mother of Pearl Plant or Gee I Don't Know What To Be Called Plant) seems happy on cool days like today. It comes from Mexico, which is quite a drive from here (and Ghost Plants are notoriously bad drivers).
