Spring flowers in northern Illinois

Can you identify these flowers?  I found these along the inner harbor in Victoria, B.C. just as the sun was setting which gave me the soft light to bring out the details in the flowers.

Update: May 2013

Thanks to Beth for ID’ing this plant as a Campanula sp. (possibly portenschlagiana)

All around the inner harbor in Victoria there are numerous gardens which is where I found this Japanese maple tree.
