Since the early 1980s, Pearl Fryar has created fantastic topiary at his garden in Bishopville, South Carolina. Living sculptures, Pearl"s topiary are astounding feats of artistry and horticulture. Many of the plants in Pearl"s garden were rescued from the compost pile at local nurseries. With Pearl"s patience and skilled hands, these “throw aways” have thrived and have been transformed into wonderful abstract shapes.

I'm hoping that if you make it to Pearl Fryar's topiary garden, that you can bring back some photos for sharing. grin
