blue flowers in yard

I seem to have a very nice crop of these pretty little blue flowers. The picture does not show it, but they are definitely blue. Does anyone have an idea as to what they are?

I have a type of small bulb that looks like that. They come out about 2 weeks after the crocuses. Chionodoxa lucilae spring bulb Clearly not the same, however.

They are similar Bob, but my flowers only have 4 petals. i believe Dennis pegged them. Not sure how they got here form the SE though.
