Is this the home ever appeared in your dream?

Have you ever dreamed a house surrounded by a rainbow of flowers? Do you think this kind of house only appears in cartoon movies? We all do decoration for our lovely home, but a couple in Britain have done this far beyond us all.

Anne and Robin Strange, who lived in Coniston Cold, North Yorkshire, UK, devote every spare hour in 26 years to their luscious house-garden - a blooming marvelous sight of a house completely covered in a rainbow of summer flowers.

Anne Strange amongst the thousands of rainbow coloured blooms almost covering her house in North Yorkshir.

The pair spends hundreds of pounds every year on seeds and plants, nurturing them inside a greenhouse before putting them on display in mid-June.

Mrs Strange, 65, said: "We were in York one day looking at all the beautiful hanging baskets and we were inspired to create our own. We have been planting more and more flowers ever since."

The couple has had an amazing response from motorists who drive past their multicolored home. One woman even sends them a gift voucher every Christmas to express her appreciation of the spectacle.

Mrs Strange said: "I dread to think how much money goes on the garden, but it definitely all adds up. It is worth it though; we are both very pleased with what we have created."

Motorists adore looking at the couple's home and one woman even sends a gift voucher every Christmas to express her appreciation of the spectacle.

Even back in 1988, left, and in 1980, right, the Strange's house looked stunning but over the years it's become even more beautiful.
