Blueberry Bouquet
Photograph by Jim Brandenburg

Minnesota's North Woods bursts with blueberries in July. This native North American shrub thrives in the region's shallow soils. When the berries ripen from green to pink to juicy blue, the feast begins for bears, birds, foxes, and humans alike. July's Blueberry Festival is one of the biggest events of the year in the town of Ely, gateway to the Boundary Waters. And you can guess what Minnesota has chosen as its official state muffin.
