Virginia bluebells

Near the banks of the North Branch of the Chicago River in Morton Grove's St. Paul Woods are various clumps of Virginia bluebells. If you click on the photograph on the left, you will see a tiny bit of the river.

This flower is common in the eastern half of the United States and Canada.
