Can anyone identify these flowers?

Asked April 2, 2020, 4:17 PM EDT

I am thinking of replacing my lawn with short, flowering plants. I notice that I already have some. The flowers are tiny. But I'd like to plant more. However, I can't identify them. I am attaching some pictures. I have added a ruler in the photos to give an idea of the size.

The purple flower is one of the veronicas, which are considered weeds. The pink is a cranesbill geranium. A perennial, it comes in many colors.
