wishing & hoping

"He knew why he wanted to kiss her. Because she was beautiful. And before that, because she was kind. And before that, because she was smart and funny. Because she was exactly the right kind of smart and funny. Because he could imagine taking a long trip with her without ever getting bored. Because whenever he saw something new and interesting, or new and ridiculous, he always wondered what she’d have to say about it—how many stars she’d give it and why."

A widower’s tribute to his adored wife, in the form of a heart-shaped meadow, has grown in secret in the Gloucestershire countryside, until being discovered by a hot air balloonist
The Daily Mail reports that after Winston Howes’ wife Janet died 17 years ago at age 50, the farmer planted thousands of sapling oaks in a six-acre meadow in order to create a lasting memorial.
He left a heart-shaped area bare, marking the space with a large hedge. The point of the heart faces Janet’s childhood home, Wotton Hill. Daffodils planted in the center of the heart push forth in spring.
The meadow is not visible at ground level, and was a family secret - until balloonist Andy Collett accidentally discovered it last week.
Howes, now 70, told the Mail that he came up with the idea in “a flash of inspiration,” and that once it was completed (with the help of his son), he put a seat in the field.
“I sometimes go down there, just to sit and think about things,” Howes told the paper. “It is a lovely and lasting tribute to her which will be here for years.”
The two were married for 33 years.
