Early Flowers in Beaumont Park

We've had a bit of a respite from the rain the last couple of days.  Unfortunately I seem to have gone down with "man flu" so I'm not feeling much like getting out and about.  However we popped out to Beaumont Park just before lunch today and I was very pleased to see lots of signs of spring on the walk and even a few early flowers adding a bit of colour to the landscape.  So here's a few of the photos that I took earlier today starting with some snowdrops.

Next are some little white and yellow primroses ...

... and some yellow ones too.

Not being an expert on flowers I had to look these next ones up and I hope they are Hellebore or Christmas Rose.

These are more Christmas Rose which are purple coloured and have not opened yet.

Some more primrose, white ones again and also a lovely vivid blue one.

I tried looking these flowers up but I wasn't sure where to start.  The leaves look a bit like hebe or maybe a pieris but it's probably something completely different.

Another unknown flower which looks a bit like an iris but is probably something else. I wish I knew more about flower species so that I don't sound so dumb when I make these posts.
