Man Plants 6,000 Trees To Honor Late Wife, His Secret Message Revealed 15 Years Later

Probably the sweetest thing you’ll read today.

Winston and Janet Howes had a relationship that most people could only dream of. It was love at first sight, and nothing could stop it. As the days of their relationship story passed, their love was becoming just stronger.

The couple married in 1962, moved into a quaint farm home in rural England and started working on building a family of their own. Shortly after moving to the wide open 112-acre fields of Wickwar, Gloucestershire, Janet gave birth to their son, and their life was truly a dream. Then the unthinkable happened.

Winston and Janet Howes had a beautiful love story. Their relationship was strong, their son was healthy, their farm flourished, and their life was perfect for over three decades.

However, everything collapsed in a single moment – the moment Janet suffered from heart failure in 1995 when she was just 50 years old and drew her last breath. Although Winston didn’t know how to keep on living without his wife, he and his son did their best in healing themselves.

Winston wanted to create a private and sacred place where he and his son could visit to remember her on the hardest of days. Therefore, Winston began planting trees — a lot of them.

To honor Janet, Winston planted 6,000 oak trees in a field near their home. Winston’s touching tribute to his late wife remained a huge secret for years. Then, 15 years later, a hot air balloonist Andy Collett flew over the meadow.

Winston planted the oak trees meticulously around a six-acre field of grass to create a heart shape, with the design’s bottom tip pointing in the direction of Janet’s childhood home in Wotton Hill.

Andy said:

“You can just imagine the love story. I have my own balloon and am quite a regular flyer, but this was the most amazing sight I have ever seen from the sky.”

Winston also built a hedge around it, too, and every spring, daffodils bloom in the center.

He shared:

“I thought it was a great idea — it was a flash of inspiration — and I planted several thousand oak trees. Once it was completed, we put a seat in the field, overlooking the hill near where she used to live.

It is a lovely and lasting tribute to her which will be here for years.”

Boy Saves All His Birthday Money To Surprise Dad

The son looked so proud!

Sometimes people just don’t have the time to go out and buy a present for someone. Instead, they just send money, so the celebrant will be the one to buy the stuff that they want for their birthday.

However, one boy didn’t use his birthday money to buy toys, gadgets, shirts, or a pair of sneakers for himself because he had a better idea in mind. The selfless 11-year-old boy saved up all his birthday money until he could afford to get his father an epic gift for Christmas.
