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.

Lasting love… A beautiful tribute to a woman, wife, and the enduring love of a husband still very much in love.
What a beautiful way to remember a loved one! She must be greatly missed from his life.

This is love!! Lightens our hearts!!
What a beautiful labour of love.
This made me cry and reminded me of my grandparents, who grew up on farms just a mile apart and shared a lasting love, similar to the love this husband and wife clearly cultivated.
