I have some mini-iris that are just starting to bloom now, when the tulips are just finishing.  Also, grape hyacinths are blooming now in my garden.  They are pretty but have grass-like foliage that looks a bit untidy when they finish blooming, IMO.  I haven't looked at my lavender yet but it should be coming along soon, too.  It can also grow a little out of control and spread, so you do have to keep it pruned or pull along the edges so it doesn't go into the adjoining flowers and choke them out.
