ID Please....

I bought these bulbs years ago when I was just a newbie gardener and don't care much about their names. Now I want to know their IDs.

These flowers are mini tulips and I love their coloration:

TIA

The pretty powder blue ones are Puschkinia - Striped Squill. I just love those. Someday I want to put a huge drift of them in my lawn. :) The tulips are Tulipa humilis - maybe 'Persian Pearl' or 'Odalisque.'

The Striped Squills and Chinodoxias are growing wildly in my garden. They make a good combination. Also, I saw a pink Tulipa Humilis while google searching, and I will try to buy some this fall.
Thank you so much for the ID.
