Out of the UK, comes this touching tale of a local favorite on the comeback trail.
More than 1,000 people have joined an internet campaign to bring back the world’s first talking plant to Aberdeen.
Fond memories of childhood conversations with Spike, a talking cactus formerly found in Duthie Park’s winter gardens, have prompted an online petition calling for his immediate return.
In the 10 days since the campaign group was formed on social networking site Facebook, more than 1,000 people have demanded Spike’s reinstatement.
I love talking cacti! I just thought I was the only one who could hear them. Good to know I’m not the only one, because I was starting to get a bit worried.
