You are very welcome.
In the UK we plant Crocus and Fritillaria into our lawns. Crocus tommasinianus works best as it spreads quite vigorously (never invasive!)
Fritillaria Meleagris is the best one for lawns that do not dry out too fast.
What about Colchicum, flowers without foliage in the autumn and then the leaves appear.
Others to consider are; Chionodoxa, Scilla, Puschkinia, and Ornithogalum Umbellatum.
If you go ahead and do this you have to post pictures!!
