Meet Pearl Fryer. Since 1981, when Pearl acquired his first yard, he has been covering it with whimsical creations from his imagination in the form of botanical art . After hearing of the racial stereotype that African Americans ‘”don’t keep up their yards,” Fryar became determined to be the first African American in the town of Bishopville to win the coveted “Yard of the Month Award” from the local Gardener’s Club.
The yard is a joy to walk through, and as everything is alive, it is constantly growing and changing. Interestingly, many of the plants in Pearl’s garden were rescued from the compost pile at local nurseries.
