Husband spends years planting thousands of fragrant flowers for his blind wife

LOVING HUSBAND QUIT FARMING TO GROW A FLOWER GARDEN FOR HIS BLIND WIFE

The shibazakura is in full bloom in the garden of Toshiyuki Kuroki's house in Shintomi-cho, Miyazaki Prefecture. On many days, up to 7,000 people come to see the bright pink flowers. 

Twenty-five years ago, his wife, Yasuko, went blind due to diabetes and lost her lust for life. Toshiyuki filled the garden with the shibazakura he had seen at his elder sister's house, and swore to cheer up his wife.
