We may still be months away from February 14th, but that won’t stop us from celebrating love everlasting. Especially when plants – well, oak trees in this case – stand to be the medium for expression.
As a tribute to his late wife, Winston Howes, a seventy year-old farmer in South Gloucestershire, England, planted several thousand oak saplings in the shape of a heart on his 112-acre farm. The heart’s point faces the direction of his wife’s childhood home. The meadow was a family secret until recently photographed by a stranger from a hot air balloon. Howes reflects, "I sometimes go down there, just to sit and think about things. It is a lovely and lasting tribute to her which will be here for years."
