Woman Pulls Hilarious Plant-Watering Prank On Husband Years After Her Death

About a year ago, Nicol, a firefighter based in London, England, was helping her father move his belongings into a retirement home when they discovered the plants he had been faithfully watering were, in fact, fake.

Take it from Antonia Nicol's parents: there can be humor mixed in, too.

In Antonia Nicol's case, her mom gave her dad explicit instructions to water the plants in their bathroom after she passed, which he kept up religiously. He's been religiously watering them & keeping them alive.

"They look so unbelievable he chose to take them to his new home, only to discover they are plastic". She wrote that she could hear "my mum chuckling" when they made the discovery.

Sadly, 69-year-old Phedre died in 2013, after a five-year battle with ovarian cancer, WSMV reports.

"It was only when we flew over to help him move that we all realised the plants were plastic", Antonia told Huffington Post. She says her father has been enjoying his newfound internet fame so much, he's made a decision to keep up the good work.

It's also been flooded with comments from people praising her mum's cheeky sense of humour.

What surprised her most about her father's hilarious story was people's reaction to it.

Nigel had been "overcome with grief" after losing Phedre, whom he first met when they were both just 16 years old.

"It's got our family and friends all chatting about mum again which is really lovely and it feels like she's right here with us, laughing along". Watering the plants "gave him something to do", Nicol said. Nicol explained that her father simply assumed the toilet was leaking.

Nicol was reminded of the moment recently and shared the story on Twitter, where it has since received more than 33,000 retweets and 109,315 likes. "She was an absolute legend for sure", Nicol told one commenter. "None of us knew", she wrote in a message on Thursday. "In times of terrible news, it's been really lovely to talk about something really sweet".
