We had the pleasure of visiting Tara Kolla’s garden while in Los Angeles for our June catalog shoot and were delighted to find fields upon fields of organic flowers. Over the last decade, Kolla has transformed her once-barren backyard into an oasis for sweet peas, poppies and zinnias aplenty, all grown without the use of chemicals and sold at local farmers markets. Of course, the land has left its mark on Kolla, too: her fingers sport a fine film of dirt, while her face carries a sun-kissed smile of content.  – Anthropologie
