    • Hi! I actually don’t have a menu of my previous posts…I never thought to add one in before! 🙂 I will definitely get on it and build one today – thanks so much for mentioning it!

      The list above is sort of a resume of articles and other work I’ve written for (mostly) print magazines and books. The content isn’t available on the Internet, for the most part. But again, you’ve given me a great idea and I will try to link up the ones that at least have a website, so that if someone wants to look up the publisher, they can. Thank you for giving me this great input, I really appreciate it!

      UPDATE: There is now an “Archives” button on my home page! 🙂

  1. I had no idea you were such a prolific writer! I’ve just clicked over to the orchid article and I’m delighted to learn so much about them. My blooms dropped recently and I lost one of the leaves. Now it know to water from below and to cut back the stalk. Thanks, Sheryl.

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
