Slightly unorthodox miniature gardens

If I haven’t introduced you to Janit Calvo of Two Green Thumbs Miniature Gardens, please say hello. Janit has been extremely busy promoting new plants, new materials, and new concepts to miniature gardening, and I’ve been trying to help. You know that weird kid in fourth grade who keeps bringing in frogs and worms to show the teacher to help out with her science classes? Yeah, it’s like that.

Anyway, I’ve been keeping an eye open for unorthodox additions to miniature gardens, and I should have a great one for her perusal and approval in a few weeks. So what should I add to the Lithops arrangement: a Viking 1 model or a Lunakhod 1 model? (I’d go for something appropriate for our current weather in Texas, but apparently nobody makes a Venera 13 model yet. Sigh.)
