Nelson County Blue Ridge Outing

Autumn in Virginia is a great time to stock up on apples. Our favorite place to go is Nelson County which has mountains surrounding it and Blue Ridge views. So, we headed for Drumheller Orchard's Apple Festival with a lunch to have along the way.

While at the festival we wandered out from the crowds and enjoyed an area that had bunches of Common Buckeye Butterflies. The video below is two of them dancing around the asters. I think they had romance on their minds.
