Shade gardening

Unfortunately I cannot grow many of my favorite plants in our backyard because it is extremely shady. Since we are not willing to cut down the 3 massive Douglas firs we have to deal with our dry, shady conditions. Today I went shopping at Swansons nursery in Ballard and bought some native plants (elderberry, thimbleberry, sword fern). I also bought columbine, forget-me-not & bleeding heart. I also included some photos of our yard the way it looks now. Hopefully in a few months it will be looking a lot better!
