Updating a garden space

This space has been an aspirational bog (that didn't work), but a very successful sedum planting until recently. We think that too much rain and extreme low temperatures decimated the sedums.  There are a few holding on.   But we decided today to try transplanting some woodland wildflowers and ferns into what's become an increasingly shady space.  I'm crossing my fingers!  My gardening companion, watering things in.
