Man Plants Heart-shaped Tribute to Late Wife Using 6000 Oak Trees

A bereaved husband painstakingly planted a tribute to his late wife, Janet using 6,000 oak trees to imprint a giant heart-shaped meadow in the middle of his 112-acre farm in South Gloucestershire, England.

In a sudden flash of inspiration to mark her legacy, Winston Howe hired a gardener and spent weeks planning and setting out each oak, carefully creating an acre-long heart, which points in the direction of Janet’s childhood hometown.

The huge heart, with hedges planted around the perimeter, was spotted by a hot air balloonist soaring over Mr. Howe’s estate.
