Granddaughter of a Franklin Street Flower Lady Carries On Her Legacy


My grandmother Ada Edwards was one of the original “flower ladies.” She raised me, and we had to go out in the fields and woods and pick flowers for her to come into Chapel Hill on Franklin Street to sell. We would get the flowers ready, like daffodils, and she would come to town and sit on the side of the street and many Chapel Hillians and university folks bought them from her.
