Husband Fulfills Dying Wife's Request To Water Plants, Learns They're Plastic Years Later

January 20, 2018

Phedre Fitton got the last laugh before she passed away from cancer in 2013.

Before she died, the 69-year-old asked her husband, Nigel, to water the plants in the bathroom of their South Africa home.

He did so for several years until his recent move into a retirement home, when it was pointed out to him that the plants he'd been watering were made of plastic.

Phedre and Nigel's daughter Antonia posted photos of her father watering the fake plants on Twitter and wrote the following message:

"Before my mum passed away, she gave my dad strict instructions to water the plants in the bathroom. He's been religiously watering them & keeping them alive. They look so amazing he decided to take them to his new home, only to discover they are plastic! Can hear my mum chuckling."

"We really laughed about it and it was lovely to think that my mum was still there with us," Antonia added.
