Man Plants Thousands Of Flowers To Make His Blind Wife Happy

A Japanese man decided to help his disabled wife in a unique and very sweet way.

Toshiyuki and Yasuko Kuroki of Japan had been married for 30 years when she went blind due to diabetes-related complications.

She reportedly got very depressed, particularly since she and her husband had planned to travel after retiring.

In an effort to lure her outside and cheer her up with visitors, he decided to plant a mass of flowers throughout their property.

The whole project, which incorporates thousands of pinkish-purple blooms, took about two years to complete.

The garden now welcomes thousands of sightseers annually, and Mrs. Kuroki can be seen smiling again.
