Enjoy the inspiring story of self-taught topiary artist, Pearl Fryar, which is sure to open hearts and minds. When Pearl Fryar and his wife sought to buy a house in an all-white neighborhood of Bishopville, SC, they were dissuaded with the explanation that Black people don’t keep up their yards. Remarkably, instead of fueling bitterness and anger, this comment motivated Pearl to win Bishopville’s Yard of the Month award and, eventually, to transform his ordinary suburban yard into a horticultural wonderland. The topiary gardens centerpiece emblazons both its message and Pearl’s own philosophy: Love, Peace, and Goodwill.
