Need help deciding what to plant and where?

I'm working on redesigning or cleaning up my garden. I don't know what to put in it. I am not really good at design and learn as I go. I'll try and post pictures but will have to put in multiple posts. Keep in mind we had to have our retaining wall redone so we had to cut some plants down to make way for the wheelbarrow.
The garden is south facing in zone 6 NY. The BB and ornamental grass stay. Right now I have purple coneflower, black eyed Susan's, Shasta daisies, day lilies (have to go, I don't like them), had some bee balm that didn't do well, and some balloon flowers. Bare spot in this picture is where my daisies and some more black eyed Susan are.

The garden is seen from all sides. Please help.

prairiemoon, you were wondering how people incorpoarte butterfly bushes in their garden? Here's a wide shot of my garden from August, 2011. The buddleia is pretty much in the center back. Keep in mind that is a shorter cultivar than most.
