Abstract
"Peggy" begins by surveying the yard of an unidentified rural setting, with bushes, cars, and piles of rocks—most significantly, broken-open geodes—visible. The film then focuses on growing artichokes and a woman tending to them before preparing a plot of land for new plants. Her work complete, the woman walks toward the door of her home, two black dogs in tow. Peggy was the name of one of JoAnn Elam's friends, and she may be the woman depicted in this film.
