When Phedre Nicol was battling cancer in 2013 at the age of 69, she gave her husband, Nigel, strict instructions should she pass away. Those instructions? Keep watering the plants in their South Africa home.
And when Phedre lost her battle in the same year, Nigel, now 73, started keeping that promise. And he's been watering the ferns in their bathroom for years. Though he probably did wonder why there were puddles of water on the floor every time he watered them.
Fast forward to 2018, and Nigel is moving into a retirement home. The ferns were still in such good shape, that he decided to pack them along with his belongings. Only then did he realize that how wife has been playing a prank on him this entire time.
