Here is my Florilegium article for March describing what is new
in my Florilegium files this month.

I would like to add a suggested articles list to the website
describing articles that folks would like to see. So, if there is
an article topic that you would like to see addressed, please send
me email and I will add it to the list. Perhaps someone will see it
listed and be interested in writing an article or already have one
available for the Florilegium and you will be able to read about
that topic.

As always, if you have suggestions, comments or criticisms about
the Florilegium, feel free to contact me.

A Blending of the Past and Present       

Over the past eleven 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:

Files that are new or have been updated are indicated by a special 
marker in the filelists at the website. In addition, the file 
-updated-files is a listing of these files in chronological order.

A copy of my complete filelist is available in most sections of the 
website. This filelist or any of my files is also available from me 
by email in either Word or text formats.

If you find a bad link or other problem with the Florilegium website, 
please let me know. Once I know about a problem I can usually fix it
that day but if no one alerts me to a problem it may be months before
I notice it myself.

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.
