Bellflowers (Campanula)

Bellflowers

Another blue flower….a real beauty.  I love blue flowers.  The color I enjoy most is blue, but a blue flower is more special than a blue dress.  I am being flip but hope I express my strong positive reaction to blue.  This little flower blooms form June to August and what a treat to find it along the roadsides and mountain trails. This is Campanula americana, if I am correct in my identification.  My father, a botanist, called it Campanula and I never knew it by the name Bellflower.
