Farmer Created Heart-Shaped Meadow in Memory of Wife

Lasting love… A beautiful tribute to a woman, wife, and the enduring love of a husband still very much in love.
With Love,
Russ

Dedicated Winston Howes, 70, spent a week planting each oak sapling after his wife of 33 years Janet died suddenly 17 years ago.

He laid out the fledgling trees in a six-acre field but left a perfect heart shape in the middle – with the point facing in the direction of her childhood home.

The labour of love has now blossomed into a mature meadow – a peaceful oasis where Winston can sit and remember his wife of 33 years.

His meadow cannot be seen from the road and has remained a family secret until a hot air balloonist took this photograph from the air.

    Wow – I remember playing a golf course where the 5th green was a heart – not even something you would notice from the ground – done as a anniversary gift to the owner’s wife.

  3. A love story…. Diane
