The second one looks like my mother of thousands. Not real sure though, I have never seen one in bud or bloom.
Life happens, I just do my best to live it.

Hi Cathy,
I would want to clarify with someone that could identify your plant for consumption prior.
There are the Purslane plants which are edible and many of the Succulents,
they say are edible.
This plant that you have shown a photo of, looks like a Succulent to me and not Purslane. I am by no means an expert, but I have grown edible Purslane in garden before.

Nothing of significance was ever achieved by an individual acting alone. Look below the surface and you will find that all seemingly solo acts are really team efforts.

They both look like Kalanchoe varieties to me - it's a BIG group, and these look like they could be two different ones?

As TRB said, the second one looks like the type often called a "Mother of Thousands" or even "Mother of Millions", because they form lots and LOTS of plantlets, right along the margins of each leaf, and they colonize like crazy!
Check out Kalanchoe daigremontiana (also known as Bryophyllum daigremontianum) and see what you think.

And the star-like flower in your first pic reminds me of a Kalanchoe marmorata that I used to grow.

The first pic looks a good bit like wild purslane but I'm not sure. I agree with Tom and zuzu on the second, definitely a type of MOT.
