The Reason Why An Old Man Spent 2 Years Creating A Flower Farm For His Blind Wife Will Leave You In Tears



While most husbands are contented buying a bouquet of roses for their wives during special occasions, one man had made an entire farm of beautiful flowers just to cheer up his blind wife.

When complications from diabetes caused his wife to go blind, Mr. Kuroki planted a field of fragrant blossoms for her which took him 2 years to finish.

According to Daily Mail UK, Mr. and Mrs. Kuroki, an elderly couple who once ran a dairy farm in Shintomi Town in Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan had planned on taking a trip around the country after they retired.

However, just after their 30th anniversary, Mrs. Kuroki suddenly lost her sight at the tender age of 52.
True love: Toshiyuki Kuroki and his wife Yasuko, from Miyazaki Prefecture in Japan, have been married for more than 60 years. But their lives haven't been free from problems

Beauty: He planted thousands of bright pink shibazakura flowers, also known as moss phlox, around their house in Shintomi Town


Saddened over the prospect of forgoing her dream trip, she became withdrawn and shuttered herself inside the couple’s home, often not wanting to leave the house.

While pondering in his garden, Mr. Kuroki spotted a pink shibazakura flower growing and realized it wasn’t just stunning to look at, but also has a lovely to smell.

Support: Her husband struck on the idea of creating a beautiful garden to encourage visitors to come to their house and cheer her up

With his mind made up, he spent two whole years creating the garden.

He chopped down trees, then planted and nurtured thousands of flowers, eventually surrounding their house with a sea of bright pink blooms.

Now, more than a decade after the first seeds were planted, the magnificent garden draws up to 7000 people each day during the spring.

Visitors take pictures of the flowers, introduce themselves to Mrs. Kuroki, and wander into old sheds that were converted into photo displays of the couple's life.

Visitors: Throughout the months of March and April the pink flowers are in full bloom, creating a beautiful carpet of pink around their home

All smiles: Mrs Kuroki can now sit in the visitors centre, in the old cow sheds, and talk to people despite the fact she is unable to see

Together: He hit on the idea after noticing some passersby admiring their small garden full of the bright pink shibazakura flowers

Throughout March and April, when the flowers are in full bloom, Mrs Kuroki has countless people to talk to and put a smile back on her face.
