The first one is grape hyacynth, which is a small perennial bulb.

In your second photo, the leaves are separate from the flowers. The greens could be Chrysanthemum, a perennial that will flower in the fall.
If you follow the little white flowers back, we think that is growing from the grass-like foliage. That is Spring starflower, Ipheion uniflorum. This is also a so-called 'minor bulb'.

The third photo is Brunnera, which is a perennial leafy groundcover- a very nice plant. If it gets hot and dry this summer, it may go dormant.
