    Hi Robin,

    I’ve designed a beautiful, spiral-bound 2021 Garden desk calendar with photographs taken in gardens around the world, including a few in my own. It would be fabulous if you could feature it to your readers. Would you like to take a look at it? I can send you a PDF. It will be available on my etsy site in a week or so.

    Cheers,
    Ellen
