Greetings to the Gentles of the Known World,

Here is a copy of this months Florilegium article, detailing what is 
knew at the Florilegium site for the month of March.

If any of you are editors for local SCA newsletters and you would like 
to get a copy of this monthly article for publication a few weeks in 
advance, so you can meet your publication lead-times, please contact me 
to be put on my list.

I will be at the Gulf Wars event in the Kingdom of Meridies in a couple 
of weeks. If any of you are going to be there and would like to come by 
and discuss the Florilegium or anything else, please do. I will be 
camping with my home barony, the Barony of Bryn Gwlad, and we are 
usually camped opposite the Ansteorra gate. Just look for a large 
square pavilion with red trim and a banner with my device, which you 
can see on the Florilegium site.

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past fifteen years in an ongoing effort, I have been 
collecting bits of useful information from various newsgroups, mail 
lists and articles submitted to me by their authors. In order to make 
this information available to others, I have placed this information in 
a series of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.

The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org

I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an article 
that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send it to me 
for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. Contact me for more details.

I am also interested in volunteers who might be interested in helping 
me maintain the Florilegium. Everything from collecting materials, 
editing and web work is needed. Again, please contact me for more 

For those who would like to help support the Florilegium project in 
another way, I have added a PayPal donation button on the top page of 
the site. Any donations, while not tax deductible, do help pay the 
overhead costs of keeping the site running.
