Gail Robinson and Barbara Macdonald, members of the Fannie Louise Holcombe Garden Club, Spartanburg, are building a Carolina Fence™ Garden at Lost Acres. The Garden, located on the south side of the Chapel, will incorporate natural and cultural state symbols as designated by the SC Wildlife Federation.   The elements include a split rail fence symbolizing the SC law to fence in livestock; blue granite, the State stone; a bird bath as the water source; Carolina wren house, for the state bird; yellow jessamine, the state flower; goldenrod, the state wild flower; Indian grass, the state grass; and other native wildflowers to attract the eastern tiger swallowtail, the state butterfly.
