Those with a garden understand it’s power to bring about complete happiness and this story about Mr. and Mrs. Kuroki from Japan is proof!
Mrs. Kuroki was diagnosed with diabetes and lost her sight due to complications of the disease. Her reaction was to become very depressed and withdrawn, and she chose to stay indoors.
As a way to help bring a smile to his wife’s face again, Mr. Kuroki spent two years planting scented flowers all around their farm for her to enjoy. He has now planted over 200 flowers and his wife smiles every single day.
This story just shows the power a garden can have for all of us!
