looks about right

The smaller flower appears to be G.verna. The larger flower is one of the trumpet gentians; probably G.acaulis but beware of G.clusii. G.acaulis has distinct green spotting inside the trumpet G clusii has little or none. G.acaulis prefers acid soils while G.clusii is usually on limestone
