English Farmer Honored His Wife With Heart-Shaped Field
Howes says the idea means that his wife will always have his heart, even though she isn’t physically there. Along with his son and others, he planted the trees in 1995, using a hedge to outline the heart shape. The “secret forest”, which isn’t visible from a road, was unknown to many until 17 years later when Andy Collett, a hot air balloonist, discovered the landscape masterpiece. Collett says the perfect heart shape tract, which had deep red hedge leaves in stark contrast to the green oak leaves, was the most amazing sight he’d ever seen from a balloon.
Howes says he often sits in the middle of the grass oasis heart in complete privacy, overlooking the countryside and “just thinking about things.”
