Even after someone we care about has passed away, it is never too late to tell them how much they meant to us. This is demonstrated by Pedro Ureta, an Argentine farmer. When his wife Graciela was alive, she fell in love with a Pampas field she had seen from the air. She was inspired to have a design in her own fields after seeing one with an incorporated milk pail pattern.
Pedro told her that they couldn’t start the project until they weren’t so swamped with other commitments, and she agreed. However, tragedy struck when Graciela passed away from a brain aneurysm in 1977. She was young, only 25. You can image how upset Pedro was.

Years later, he finally made it his mission to realise Graciela’s wish. To honour her memory, he decided to plant a guitar pick in their turf in the shape of her favourite instrument. The design, which is about a third of a mile long, required a lot of time and effort, but it was well worth it in the end.
Even from the air, this stunning expression of affection, made of cypress and blue eucalyptus trees, is breathtaking. Graciela’s experience of exhilaration during her flight over the Pampas is now shared by many others.
