Wintergreen
Nelson County, Virginia

As the mountains warm across the Blue Ridge, that signal the time for the annual Wintergreen Nature Foundation Spring Wildflower Symposium. The even was held this past weekend at TWNF and included many walks through the mountains where people could see endless varieties of wildflowers in the mountains of Wintergreen. Our Paul Purpura went along for the walk and grabbed a few shots along the way!

Some of the past symposiums here and here.

Mountain Laurel is abundant in the Blue Ridge. Just one of the beautiful varieties folks got to see this past weekend.
