A celebratory post today because it’s my blog-i-versary — HOUSEPLANTHOUSE turned 4 years old this week! I always like to share this milestone because setting up HPH has become quite a pivotal point in my career so far.

HOUSEPLANTHOUSE is one year old! To celebrate I have had a bit of a website re-design, I hope you like it.

You can click the Instagram link on the right hand column if you want to find out anything specific about a particular photograph. [L-R] / Day 7: Spot the Fake /…Read More
