People grieve in different ways after losing a loved one. Some turn to their family and friends for support, others take up activities that allow them to cope with their loss.
A man from South Texas had an extraordinary relationship with his lovely wife. During their happy 7 year long relationship they kept dreaming about planting a garden together. Unfortunately, their dreams about the future were crushed, as tragedy struck and his wife passed away after falling into a coma. Heartbroken and desperate, this man decided to fulfill his wife’s dream and plant a beautiful garden in her honor.
As is turns out, gardening is not that easy. It took him hours of google search to get through the preparation of the lawn and planting his first flower. Over the course of a few months, he finally got the hang of how things work. He learned a lot through trial and error, but things started to really pick up when he met a few gardeners and landscapers. They gave him valuable advice on how to deal with the soil he was working with.
After some time, his new garden began to gain attention. People were stopping by to check on his progress. But one particular stranger stands out in this inspiring story. Passing through the man’s house he couldn’t help but notice the new succulent garden emerging, and the stranger offered to give some plants to the new gardener. It turns out that the stranger’s son was the director of a botanical garden and he had sadly passed away, so the grieving stranger was trying to clear out his son’s greenhouse. A special friendship, between two men who have lost their loved ones, thus began. The stranger would leave his son’s plants at night and the gardener would find them in the morning. The Widower started calling the stranger his ‘Plant Fairy,’ as he would constantly wake up with beautiful new plants left for him in the garden.
Over the course of a year, he learned a lot, met some incredibly kindhearted people and most importantly, began to feel a little better.
