Peonies from Great Gramma's Garden in Alabama

Taylor came in one afternoon on her bike with a backpack full of plants. She had dug up lillies and peonies from garden, full of buds yet to burst. Originally the plants were from her great gramma's garden in Alabama. Years ago when her family moved to Chicago, they brought some of the plants with them.

Taylor chose a lot of herbs and vegetables to start her family garden. She interned at Charlie Trotter's restaurant last summer and learned to appreciate fresh ingredients so this year she'll grow her own.
