‘Ephemera’ derives from the Greek ephemeros which means ‘lasting only one day, short-lived’. I have created a section on my website as a space to share these transient moments I like to document in some way. Aside from my plant care blog posts, these ephemera act as a punctuation in proceedings, and offer a pause, a break for the reader in scrolling through HPH.  They also act as a visual diary of sorts.

I think it’s safe to say that most people who have an interest in plants also develop a wider appreciation of nature and feel a deeper connection to the outside world in general. You’ll notice that the seasonal shifts are not only marked by the change in temperature and light but also what is flourishing or fading; in your garden, your houseplants or the plants and trees lining the streets you walk everyday. I let out an audible gasp a few weeks ago when I noticed the appearance of glistening, jewelled berries on the holly bush. Of course, I often like to photograph these fleeting moments so that is precisely a flavour of what will be appearing on these posts.
