Today (11-May-2017) — New Jersey

Spring flowers in my backyard.  I am not sure of the identification of the white, yellow, orange, blue, and purple ones. Any help with the ID is appreciated. The red flower is an Italian or crimson clover (Trifolium incarnatum), a perennial from the wildflower mix that I planted last year. I remember it was one of the first to show up at that time.
