A man's secret tribute to his wife

A man called Winston Howes who lives in the Gloucestershire countryside created a lasting memorial to his wife who passed away 17 years ago at the age of 50. 
What he did was got 6000 oak saplings and planted the saplings on his property. The trees form a heart shape, which is kept bare by a large hedge, and the bottom tip of the heart points to Janet's childhood home. 
Winston Howes who is now 70 years old, said he got the idea for the meadow in a flash of inspiration, and has since put a seat in the field. He sometimes goes down there, just to sit and think about things.
