Bella and Edward in the meadow.

"The meadow was small, perfectly round, and filled with wildflowers — violet, yellow, and soft white. Somewhere nearby, I could hear the bubbling music of a stream."
Bella's description of the meadow[src]

The meadow is an open space in the forest near Forks and is described as the most beautiful place located there. During spring and summer, the place grows beautiful flowers. From Bella's house, she and Edward take Highway 101 North and Highway 110 until the pavement ends, and then hike through the woods for about 5 miles to get to the meadow. In Twilight, Bella describes it as the loveliest place she has ever seen.

According to Stephenie Meyer, when she first came up with the story, this was the very first scene she envisioned. Edward explained to Bella how much he wanted to kill her, and yet how much he loved her, while she remained completely calm to his words.[1]

Twilight

Meadow-scene

Edward takes Bella to the meadow.

Edward takes Bella to the meadow in Twilight after she finds out he is a vampire. She describes it as the most beautiful place she's ever seen. In the novel, this is where Bella sees Edward's body sparkle under sunlight for the first time. He also demonstrates his strength and speed, frightening and dazzling her at the same time.

In the movie, a whole sequence is based around the meadow, showing Bella and Edward lying in the meadow without speaking.

New Moon

NewMoonStill08

Bella's dream in New Moon.

In New Moon, Bella has a dream of her grandmother (who is actually Bella herself) and Edward in the meadow.

She later attempts to relocate it (dragging Jacob along with her) hoping to relive her memories with Edward after he left her in Forks. When she finds it, all the flowers and grass have devastatingly withered. And then, the vampire Laurent attempts to kill her in the meadow, but the wolves emerge from the trees and chase him until they kill him. This is where Bella sees the wolves of the Quileute tribe for the first time.

Eclipse

Bella and Edward in

Bella and Edward embrace before they tell Charlie of their engagement.

In Eclipse, Edward takes Bella to visit this place after their victory against the Seattle newborn army and after Bella informed Alice to arrange her and Edward's wedding. By June, this place is full of wild and beautiful flowers. Edward refers to it as "our meadow."

In the movie, Edward and Bella's first appearances are in the meadow, where Bella is reading the poem "Fire and Ice". Edward tenderly asks her to marry him, but she refuses him every time.

At the end of the movie they go for the final time to their meadow where Bella decides that they are going to tell Charlie of their engagement.

This is the last time the meadow appears in the book series.
