It might not be the Taj Mahal but the sentiment is the same for Winston Howes, the English farmer who created this beautiful memorial for his wife.
A devoted farmer painstakingly planted a tribute to his late wife, Janet, using 6,000 oak trees to etch out a giant heart in the middle of his field in South Gloucestershire, England. Howes, 70, and a gardener spent weeks planning and setting out each oak after his wife died suddenly 15 years ago. He planted the fledgling trees across a six-acre field after carefully marking out a heart shape in one half of the grass, with the heart pointing in the direction of her childhood home. The stunning crop was captured in its full beauty after a balloonist sailed over the farmhouse and photographed the field from the air.
When his wife Janet died fifteen years ago, Howes carefully planted 6,000 oak trees in the shape of a heart, the end of which points to her childhood home, and that labor of love has now grown into her own sacred grove of sorts in South Gloucestershire, England.
