Greetings to the Gentle folk of the SCA-Cooks list,

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for June, detailing what is  
new in the Florilegium this month.

If you run a website, I also produce a special version of this  
article meant for publication on websites. If you would like to get a  
copy of that version each month, please email me. Or if you are an  
editor of an SCA newsletter and would like to get a copy of this  
article several weeks in advance so you have enough time to get all  
your pre-press work done, please email me.

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past eighteen 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 collection 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. A&S documentation  
and class handouts will also often work out well.

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
