Have I talked about the documentary A Man Named Pearl on here before? If not, I donâ€™t know why I havenâ€™t. I recently recommended the fascinating movie to a friend. It is about a man named Pearl Fryar who has made it his lifelong quest to turn his front and back lawn into a topiary sanctuary. The movie and Mr. Fryarâ€™s unwaivering passion is a marvel.
The tiny town of Bishopsville, SC where his garden is located is only a three-hour drive from Raleigh. Iâ€™ve tried to convince my husband on a few occasions to turn off that stretch of the highway, but have yet to stop. I think a dedicated road trip is in order, whoâ€™s with me?
