Virginia Bluebells - Knowledgebase Question

Martinsville, VA
Question by thefullers98

We moved into our new home about 3 years ago. This spring, as I was exploring some of the wooded area behind our house, I saw a bunch of flowers that I could not identify. I think they may be bluebells, but I am not having any luck finding a picture on the internet to help me identify them. Do you know where I may find pictures that will help me to figure out what these beautiful blue flowers were?

Here is a link to a photo in the vascular plant images gallery at Texas A&M.

You will find additional pictures using a search engine such as google and the Latin name for the plant, Mertensia virginica, as the search terms.
