It looks lovely. Can I make a suggestion please?
Try sprinkling some horticultural fine grit around the alpines to help with drainage. Alpines like gritty soil with good drainage. They can't stand having their roots in damp, soggy soil. I can't see if you have done this from your photo, but if not it will stop the plants from rotting if they are planted in compost or garden soil.I can see that you have planted some houseleeks, and they particularly love gritty soil that is very well drained..
