This farmer planted a heart-shaped meadow to honor his late wife.
Winston Howes, green thumb and hopeless romantic, planted 6,000 oak trees in the shape of heart in his South Gloucestershire meadow 15 years ago as a tribute to his late wife, Janet. His stunning memorial was his very own secret garden for years until a hot air balloonist happened to cruise over the land and captured a picture of the giant grassy emblem. “I have my own balloon and am quite a regular flyer—but this was the most amazing sight I have ever seen from the sky,” the pilot, Andy Collet told The Telegraph . “It was a perfect heart hidden away from view—you would not know it was there. You can just imagine the love story.”
