concrete or cement?

We went to bed on Monday night with the front of our house looking like this.

The kids and I ate breakfast Tuesday morning looking out the window at this.
Now it's the weekend and we're finally getting the posts put on.

It's 2 feet deeper, and isn't cracking OR sinking - three reasons to be thrilled! Lastly, and most importantly - we didn't have to pay a penny for it! Our payment was our old pick-up truck which we'd been trying to sell anyway. I love it when things work out like that!

So now, I have two questions for you...
Do you know the difference between concrete and cement?
What would you add to the space? Keep in mind that I do NOT have a green thumb, I do not remember to water plants, and I can't even begin to keep up with the weeding that is needed everywhere else in my yard! Let alone, my budget is very small.

No green thumb here either ... Maybe some super pretty plastic flower arrangements? ;) I have no clue what the difference between concrete and cement ... I'm off to check it out.
