A Desktop Calendar Experiment

I change the background image on my computer once a month and I really like having a calendar on my computer desktop, since I don't have a wall calendar in the office. For the past several years I have been using the desktop calendars from Chocolate and Zucchini, a food blog that I follow. Unfortunately, she is no longer making the images with calendars. Thus I was left with a dilemma. I need to find a new place to get my desktop calendars. I didn't find any that I really wanted to look at for a month, so I decided to make my own. I have a lot of bryophyte images that I wouldn't mind looking at for a month and here is the result. 

If you are interested in downloading this desktop calendar follow the instructions below. 

1 - Single click on the image to open it up in a new window. (If you use the image directly from the blog post you will loose a lot of resolution.)

2 - Right-click (or ctrl-click) on the image, and chose the option that says, "Set as Desktop Background" or "Use as Desktop Picture". The wording may vary.  

3 - If the image does not fit your desktop neatly, you may have to adjust the image (Mac: System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop; Windows: Control Panel > Display > Desktop) and choose "Fill screen" as the display mode of your background image.

I hope that the image comes through with enough resolution and that I positioned the calendar well so that it doesn't get cut off. Any issues or suggestions please let me know. This is totally an experiment and we shall see how it goes.

And I almost forgot the bryological information. These are leafy gametophytes of the moss Funaria hygrometrica (cord moss) that I grew in the laboratory. It is a population from Connecticut that I used for my PhD research.
