A Special Treat:  “How Do Succulent Seeds Sprout?” by Harry Evans, Victoria, BC

Up till now, the only html articles added to this web site have come from The Amateurs’ Digest in The Wayback Machine.

Today, to celebrate Marina’s “1994 Special Edition” coming online, let me treat Marina’s new and old readers to an excerpt from the 1994 Special Edition (paper issue), an article entitled:  “How Do Succulent Seeds Sprout?” complete with diagram.

For this occasion, I’m posting the article in html on the Articles Revived page, which will get it into the search engines so that many can enjoy it.  See the embedded excerpt for the diagram that accompanies the article.

What’s New This Week?

Hello, everyone.  I’m back, and I’ve managed to rescue two nice articles with pics from The Wayback Machine for the “Articles Revived” page on the top menu:

1. Dream Garden Comes True by Steve Miles of Colorado, and
2. Adam’s Very Hardy Needle by Doug Rowland, UK

And, totally cool, I have discovered that we can have round thumbnails in WordPress galleries!  They work like regular thumbnails, just click on a round picture and the gallery slideshow will launch.

A new tab has been added on the top menu, far-right, “Questions & Answers” with the first drop-down dated April 9, 2001.

I’ve gone back to the old logo but added a new flower to it from one of Marina’s own plants from the hothouse window on their breakfast room.  Moved the sticky post of Marina with BB, her parrot to the sidebar with a link to that post on the photo of Marina and her bird.

Have yourself a great day.  Thank you for visiting.

I’m Kathleen, Marina’s daughter.
 


I’ve Started A Top-Menu Tab Called “Articles Revived” And I’ve Put Up A Few Items

I love the cute sub-tabs, but I think I’ll eventually have to move these titles onto a single page, under the main tab, for easier access. I’m also not dating them, except where a date or a partial date appears in the text of the article. I can’t easily tell the date when they were published originally, because the Wayback Machine copies these pages on dates of its own.

So far, the following articles from Marina Welham’s The Amateurs’ Digest have been revived:
