Remembering to water the plants is, at the best of times, tricky.

There's just so many other things you could be doing with your time like watching telly or going out on the town or buying new plants after the ones you forgot to water died.

One person who did remember to water the plants, though, is Antonia Nicol's dad.

Before Antonia's mum passed away, she asked her dad to always remember to water the plants in the bathroom.

Naturally, in accordance with his late-wife's wish, Antonia's dad did just that.

However, four years later, both Antonia and her dad realised that the plants were, in fact, fake.

The London woman took to Twitter to tell the tale that she knew would have left her mum "chuckling."

It wasn't long before Antonia's tweet did the rounds on social media, delighting everybody who was lucky enough to have a read of it.

She went on to say that she was glad her mum left her dad the task.

She said:

"Honestly, we were all so proud of my dad being so dedicated to caring for her plants. Gave him something to do."
