The title about says it; both kinds of purple are flowers.

Medium purple blossoms against small purple blossoms

The little ones are a ground-cover recommended by a professional gardener for our front yard; since the kids play out back, we don’t want to be defending a grass lawn from moss and creeping buttercup and dandelions and all the other enemies. This stuff just spreads out and covers up and you can walk on it a bit while you’re gardening. Don’t know what it’s called.

Don’t know what the larger purple flowers are either.

Aha! I've just had the same problem with the little blue flowers, as we have a patch of it in our garden, and liked it so much that we wanted to get more. I think it is a trailing bellflower, Campanula poscharskyana http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campanula_poscharskyana

As for the larger one, I'm stumped!
