Rafflesia arnoldi, 1822

Visit The Smithsonian Institution Libraries web site, www.sil.si.edu/. It is a  Galaxy — a treasure trove of information. For example, in the Galaxy of Images, under Collections, I scrolled through images of flowers, mushrooms, trees. Fascinating.

The flowers, scanned from their vast collection are taken from illustrated manuscripts, botanical drawings and old seed packets.  The site is a virtual bookshelf of digital editions.  Beam yourself up!
