Look out Richard, it’s BEHIND you!

The photos that have hit the fandom (hard) answer interesting questions (cat vs. dog), provide material for contemplation (fatigue/hangover/jet lag/got out of bed too late?), but there’s something much more important to chinwag over.

Richard Armitage potted plant

Let’s play a round of:

What plant is growing from Richard’s shoulder?

Is it a bird, is it a plane?

I think it’s an orchid (Orchidaceae) with yellow/golden flowers.

They seem like a popular choice in hotels and offices, so it’d stand to reason  one would be growing out of RA’s shoulder in this candid shot.

I hate to boast but I’m actually a bit of an orchid specialist, just call me Ms AgzyM Green Fingers.

Yup, I posses 4 (count them! FOUR!) orchid pots residing on my window sill that I need to protect as Magzy is always threatening to chuck them, and perhaps with good reason (she cannot see beyond obvious beauty).

Woof Armitage flower

People think it’s the flowers that are the main feature, but I’ll let you in on a secret.

Not one of my orchids is blossoming, not even close.

Who the heck needs some beautiful colourful flowers when you can have pots full of dodgy leaves!

All four of my orchids have put all their bloody energy into their leaves which still manage to look a tad shrivelled up, and have disturbing brown stems sticking out.

Who needs orchid flowers if you can have this:

(not my picture but certainly could be if you doubled the pots, did I mention I have four of these stunners?)

Although I think I’m right with my analysis of the type of potted plant in question (I haven’t read/watched Christie and Doyle stories since I was 10 for nothing!) I’d very much like to hear your opinions.

If you have other suggestions, make sure you link a picture 🙂
