Husband Spends 2 Years Planting Thousands of Flowers for His Blind Wife to Smell

Mr. and Mrs. Kuroki lived a happy life as dairy farmers in rural Japan, raising two lovely children. But tragedy struck when Mrs. Kuroki suddenly lost her sight due to complications from diabetes. Soon, she became depressed and withdrawn, secluding herself in the family home.


Mr. Kuroki struggled to find a way to cheer up his wife, until he suddenly had a beautiful idea. He planted a flower garden where she could enjoy their smell, enticing her to go outside. Two years of hard work and thousands of flowers later, the private farm is now a tourist attraction, drawing thousands of people every year, from all around the world, who wish to see this real life love story. And best of all, Mrs. Kuroki is once again smiling.


Here's the full story, along with a video at the end.
