"I have my own balloon and am quite a regular flyer," Collett said. "But this was the most amazing sight I have ever seen from the sky. It was a perfect heart hidden away from view - you would not know it was there."
The general public was largely unaware of the heart until Collett took pictures of it from his balloon. After that, people wanted to know exactly how the heart got there. Needless to say, it was not put there by aliens or by pure coincidence.
And the heart itself isn't exactly empty either. "We plant daffodils in the middle that come up in the spring - it looks great, " Winston said. "I go out there from time to time and sit in the seat I created."
"Once it was completed we put [a] seat in the field, overlooking the hill near where she used to live," he said. "I sometimes go down there, just to sit and think about things. It is a lovely and lasting tribute to her which will be here for years."
Collett's balloon flight may have brought the heart to the public, but he wasn't the first one to fly over it. "I also flew over it myself about five years ago," Winston said. So he's already gotten to see how perfect his tribute looks when viewed from above.
