Wild Flowers Galore! Feb 8, 2008
A beautiful calendar -- Audubon does it again! I find their calendars to be consistantly of great print quality, and the photography to be done by some of the field's premier nature photographers. Aubudon calenders are not only beautiful, they are educational as well. They are loaded with interesting information about the fauna or flora depicted on a particular month. As a Horticulturalist, I appreciate the inclusion of the latin names of the plants, as some picture calendars have only common plant names, and some don't even have either. Through their calenders, Audubon transports you to the places they photograph, and it is always a great trip.
