Would like your suggestion on a low-profile ground cover to grow between the flagstone below. some direct sun light (maybe a few hours a day).

I like Elfin Thyme Elfin Thyme (Thymus serpyllum 'Elfin')
always had good luck with it.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I also thought of creeping thyme. And groundcover roses there to the right of the flagstones.

That is a lovely area Pem. I don't know about groundcover, but some lilies would make the area pop. lol. What about some creeping phlox?
