This woman came up with a creative idea for her husband 

Love can be magical. Especially when you share it over almost a whole lifetime, like the couple this story revolves around. It seems like they had a very special bond since they've apparently shared their lives with one another since they were 16 years old. Before her death at 69 years old, she contrived a funny plan to prank her husband Nigel after she's gone. You could almost say, she left him a sweet parting gift. Even the widower can't help but laugh at his late wife's elaborate prank!

The prank remained undiscovered for a long time...

The prank has to do with a request Nigel met for a pretty long time. Before her death, his wife asked him to water a plant regularly. Nigel dutifully fulfilled her wish and waters the plant until he makes a surprising discovery:

"Can hear my mum chuckling"

Her daughter Antonia shared a post on Twitter in which she tells us about her late mother's funny prank! 

"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!"

So all this time...Nigel...watered...plastic plants! This is such a sweet story!

This is how Twitter responded to the adorable tweet:

The tweet about grandma's sweet prank travels quickly - and reaches many people of the Twitter community! Thousands of people re-shared the post and many more thousands liked it.

But how does the widower handle the whole thing?

This is how the pranked man reacted

How did the widower react to the "plant trick"? Not everyone finds it funny to water plants for years only to find out that they are made of plastic. At this point, we would like to point out that it took him 5 years to figure this out. When Nigel moved houses, he only realized they are plastic because he wanted to repot them. And Ta-da: Fake plants!

The widower proved his sense of humor, as you can see in the following picture:

Nigel can laugh about his late wife's prank

The widower proves his sense of humor and laughs about his wife's prank, as this post shows. He just keeps on watering the plastic plants. Is there really water in the water can though?!

This beautifully funny story demonstrates how profound a lifelong partnership can be, and how it can continue even after death. The sweetest gifts are the ones that make you laugh and Nigel's wife definitely achieved that.
