Sunday Smiles

Winston & Janet Howe were happily married for 33 years.

And when Janet passed away 17 years ago, Winston was lost.

He wanted to do something to remember her...and as a farmer, what he decided to do was plant thousands of saplings in a field just for her.

In the middle, he left a heart shaped space.

Now 17 years on, the heart shaped meadow that points toward Janet's childhood home is where Winston can often be found - sitting and remembering his love.

What a beautiful thing to do!!!


  1. Oh my gosh, that has made me tear up! Poor Winston :( What a beautiful thing to do. xx
