Have you picked out a garden calendar yet?

I've bought a couple of calendars as gifts; now I'm trying to pick a couple for me. These are some nice ones I've found. (Add Product isn't working, so I'm just posting the images right now.)

I buy lots of calendars at Xmas to send to friends. They are an inexpensive and useful gift which I think remind you of the giver when you turn a page each month.  I also have one in every room of the house, alternating between cats and gardens:smileyhappy:. I prefer the slim calendars with a line to write on for each day.  I also buy family organiser calendars, with several columns, for my busy children and  I write the birthday of each family member on them, which they find a very useful aide memoire.

 

Until a couple of years ago I made my own calendars using family, pet and garden photos I had taken throughout the year.  There are a number of free calendar making programs, like this one, on the net. I used double-sided A4 glossy brochure paper, which is like that used on the calendars you buy, then had them spiral bound at a local print shop.  For sending abroad at a cheaper rate I printed a collage of photos on heavier weight card and attached a small calendar at the bottom and a ribbon 'hook' at the top.  They were all very popular:smileyhappy:.

Re: Have you picked out a garden calendar yet?

My sister made us all calendars of family pictures last year -- it was a big hit. I have a couple friends who are talented photographers as well as gardeners, and they've sent me some beautiful calendars of their own garden photos. 

 

I have a tradition of buying this calendar for myself every year:

It always has really interesting paintings. This year I bought this one:

And I always have one of these "note nook" calendars:
