need help with lawn!

Dear all,

I'm new here, and this is my first post!

Husband and I just moved into a new house this November. So, this is our first spring, and our first look at our existing "lawn". As you can see from the photo (I hope), it's not much to look at ... mostly weeds, and unattractive ones at that.

There is some clover, and a very few nice little purple flowers.

I'd like to get a nice, no-mow, ecologically friendly lawn going, with an abundance of wildflowers. I have no idea where to start. Please help! What do I do?

Here's the little purple flower - I couldn't attach more than one photo to the original message. How can I encourage more of these??? Or do I just need to start over?
