I have white clover and dandelion that flower in my lawn each spring/summer, are there any other plants that will grow in my lawn that flower?

Lots! Violets (Johnny Jump-up and other small varieties) and Roman chamomile are two that come immediately to mind. There is something I've heard people call "lawn daisies" which are daisy like flowers tiny enough to flourish in a lawn but I don't know their botanical name. There are also many flowering grasses; you could find out about some of those via a native plant society in your state.

My mom always had spring crocus in her lawn. Other early small bulbs would likely work as well. Lawn daisies are also known as English daisies English Daisy (Bellis perennis) and grow nicely in grass. I have several patches and after a mow, they just send up new flower heads. Here's a somewhat blurry photo, but you can get the gist of how they look in the lawn.

I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Thanks! Even I was in need of this list. I need to plant some of the flower plant in my yard.

Recently I had a tree removal done by treeprosonoma.com and now I have a lot of space to plant in my yard. Thye recommended to plant flower trees.
