It was Marilyn Monroe who once said, “I am more likely to be on a calendar than on time”. Despite both being sticklers for time keeping, Terry and I now have something in common with her as we launch our own calendar, Plot on the Landscape.
It was great fun to produce – which has been captured in the photos – and I’m sure the humorous captions will make you smile, whether a keen gardener or not.
You will also be able to tell that it has been kept authentic. We like that. From the dirt under our fingernails to our ‘comfy’ gardening clothes, nothing has been tweaked, filtered or photo shopped. We are, after all, down to earth.
We hope it brings you as much pleasure as we had creating it, and thank you in anticipation for supporting our chosen charities.
The calendar is £8.00 plus £1.60 shipping.
