I think it looks great, Give it time to fill in and you will be surprised how lovey it will be.
Maybe one small suggestion, Add something tall to it along the back and perfect...

you dont think the elephant ears are gonna be a bit much? and thank you so much. its nice to hear that it looks okay. it seems that with gardening you work really hard and get these "great" ideas, and then when your done you take a step back and look at it, like, 'that is not what i pictured in my head AT ALL.' and then you question everything. am i the only one? anyways.

Nope! I have reworked so many gardens because they didn't"look" just like I thought they would
How big where your EE's last year? You may need to move them if they become large, or add one to the other side for balance, And always remember the plants need time to fill in. It took me a looong time to learn that ..lol

I agree with the others' comments about your raised planter. If you really want suggestions, though, what if you took the planter on the ground and suspended it on the wall centered under the windows? Mowing would be easier.

that is a good idea. i just moved that planter to the side of the house. it is flowers that my girls picked out. they just had to have pink, and i didnt think it would go good with everything else, so i stuck them in there.
