About Wildflower

I'm Wildflower (a.k.a Evie Fordham), and when the middle of October rolls around every year, you'll most likely find me strolling through the gardens, admiring the blue ribbon flowers, and sipping on lemonade at the State Fair. I'm having fun as a summer intern writing and researching about this North Carolina tradition!
