Thanks, Shaylaina, for the extra information. Those little purple flowers are lovely and are a great mix with all those greens.

Thanks. The spotted leaves are lungwort which blooms in spring, so it's done and then the other dark green leaf plant is a Toad Lily so it won't bloom until Fall. I really need something else in here for colour, but money is a bit tight and since the space is small I'm being rather fussy about what I want to put in there. I had a bleeding heart but it died, guess it didn't like the spot. So I'm just waiting to see what else it is I want in there.
I have such limited space that if I'm going to take my time and find just what I want.:)

I do that as well - take the time to choose the just-right plant - as I have a few small spaces to fill around my courtyard garden. Impulse buys generally don't work for me.
