a farmer’s immortal love letter to his departed wife can only be seen from the air

this is probably the best love letter and tribute any man has ever made for the love of his life – a heart shaped meadow on his property that can be seen from the heavens and yes something that can last forever.

the wife from heaven will be smiling forever.

British Farmer Creates Heart-Shaped Meadow as Tribute to Late Wife

When Winston Howes’ wife Janet died 17 years ago, he wanted to find a meaningful and lasting way to honor her. So Howes headed out to the 112-acre (45 hectare) farm he owns near the town of Wickwar, in the southwestern English countryside. He set aside a 6-acre (2.5 hectare) plot and spent a week planting thousands of oak saplings, leaving a perfectly heart-shaped clearing in the middle.
