This is a rather touching story from England. The guy kept it totally secret until it was spotted from a hot air balloon. Lovely to see 6000 oak trees planted - beautiful things they are.

What's the most romantic thing anyone's ever done for you? To be honest, my wife buying me a cigar does the trick for me :smile: .

That story got me a little misty-eyed, I have to confess. :thumbsup:

Tough question. Just knowing what I want when I want it, I guess. Which could be anything, even something small like a nice snack and a beer. I'm easy to please. :idunno:

My dear old dad planted 100 red beech trees on their property for my mum to celebrate one of their wedding anniversaries. They are now mature and thriving and extremely beautiful. Its a wonderful story. Those trees will be fucking HUGE by the time my great-grandchildren see them.

When I win the lottery I'm going to buy some land back home and plant some trees.

Most romantic? Hmmmmmmmm well whatever it is, I want it done while I'm alive, I wouldn't care for a heart shaped clearing after my untimely demise :lol: .

Up until now? I think it's my husband making my bed tea for me, each day.

Thursday would be better, but I'll settle for the 400million or so (less 22% tax) tonight.

Once someone told me that they'd never have sex with anyone but me. It was the most romantic moment of my life.

Alas, she lied.
