Thou Plant, Arthur

Arthur and friends.
I really can’t recall how old the plant is.  I do know that it spent at least fifteen years in my various offices until about two years ago when it came to the house, along with this pundit.  Yesterday I was moving into a new office and decided to bring the plant along (it never quite found a spot at the house.)  As soon as the plant and I entered the office two staff rushed over.

“What’s it’s name?” She asked.
Huh?  Uh, er, “Plant?”   I mumbled.  That was not the correct answer.
“George, every plant has a name.”  She looked closer at the plant.  “Arthur.  This plant’s name is Arthur.”

So, Arthur has a new place, obviously among friends.

Somehow, I suspect there’s a Gnome lurking around this new place…
