Some husbands bring a bouquet of flowers home for their wives. But not Englishman John Brooker. He wanted something a little more permanent that his wife could come home to day in and day out.
It doesn't hurt that John Brooker, 75, is a gardener by trade.
Flowers are nice, roses are romantic, but he felt like he could hedge his bets on this one.
A decade later, a mythical beast greets his wife every day and watches over their home.
It's 20 feet high and requires hours of constant upkeep.
But it's all worth it.
