I’ve always had a wall calendar by my desk to see the current month at a glance even though appointments, etc. are on my electronic calendar. I mark only my trips on the wall calendar. And for the last few years I’ve zeroed in on calendars by the Costa Rica Nature Photographer PUCCI. The one I just bought for 2021 (feature photo) has a greater purpose than just nature, part of the price I paid goes toward planting trees in Cost Rica! It is called Árboles Mágicos and supports one of the best ways to fight Global Warming! Our trees absorb some of that carbon dioxide the fossil fuel cars are emitting and Costa Rica is already working on that, planning a future of only electric cars. And if you don’t already know, Costa Rica already has 100% clean electricity now! 🙂 The United States should be embarrassed that this little developing country is so far ahead of them! The Árboles Mágicos proposition in a one minute video en español:
“Trees exhale for us so that we can inhale them to stay alive. Can we ever forget that? Let us love trees with every breath we take until we perish.”
― Munia Khan
And for those interested in more details, this year (2020) I had Pucci’s “Backroads & Trails” Calender with photos of twelve trails/roads, eight of which I’ve been on! 🙂 I love this place!
Now here is just one month from the new 2021 calendar to show how it looks:
And here’s the back with all 12 month’s photos shown if you can see the small image. The majority are flowering trees.
And of course I have a Trees Gallery as a new sub-gallery of my Flora & Forest Gallery. 🙂 All photos made in Costa Rica, the most bio-diverse country in the world!

I went to there website to see if it was possible to get their calendar. I found books and calendar but no ordering information. How did you get yours?
Steve, I had the same experience on their website when I first tried to order one there. They evidently don’t retail the calendars themselves but depend on bookstores. I always get mine at the Librería Internacional in City Mall, Alajuela, across the street from the San Jose Airport. So I went back there for mine again this year. I just checked and Librería Internacional does have online ordering but can’t guarantee they do international shipping as I haven’t tried. The calendar is there at https://www.libreriainternacional.com/Regalos/Detalle/11972
Or maybe easier to just come back home to Costa Rica! 🙂
Steve, I forgot to add that you can change the bookstore website to English language by right clicking the page and choosing English.
Gracias! & if only we could just come there. I will try ordering the calendar. Virus is spiraling out of control here. 500 new cases yesterday in New Hampshire. I believe that’s double in a week. Finally a mask mandate yesterday ( without any enforcement mechanism). Hope is on the horizon for a vaccine. What is the acceptable number of little ol ladies am I permitted to push out of the way to get to the front of the line?
Sorry you don’t respect us little old ladies. I assume that also applies to little old men, like Charlie, LOL??
