Have I talked about the documentary A Man Named Pearl on here before? If not, I don’t know why I haven’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. Fryar’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. I’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, who’s with me?
