Those are lovely, John. Am a bit nervous about IDing wildflowers now, but I do think #2 is a wood anenome.

No 4 pink flower is Wild geranium or cranesbill, from it's seed.
no 5 pink flower is Ladies smock or cuckoo flower, because it flowers around the time of the first cuckoo.
Buttercup is correct, and I usually call it cow parsley, but can be confused with many other similar umbrels.
Solomons seal is also correct, well done.
The other blue flower is another of the various speedwells, as were also in with the creeping ivy and the dog violets in an earlier post.
It can be very difficult to name most of the wild flowers, and even with fifteen different books I can also get it wrong, so don't get downhearted. I have grown up in the country and had the advantage of elder statesmen / countrymen to tell me. I have a good website to get verification from so I will try and find the link to hel[p you in future.

As promised I have located it from my other pc and it is
http://www.british-wild-flowers.co.uk/ I hope this works, well I tried it and got there so this could well be a veritable treasure trove of identifications for you, and any you are really stuck on a Mr Somerville is exceedingly helpful, just make sure the picture contains the base of the plant as this is often the key to identification. Enjoy your wild flowers and hope you get the much needed help on your queries, as I have had from this source.
ps, he will ask for permission to display pictures he hasn't got and give you the credit for them if you get a real rarity!
