Can't beat a good book I say. The web is great but reading a real bit of paper still tops everything so here's some reading material to go on with.
First up I'd just have to say that Orchids of Western Australia is THE coffee table book to have. Patricia Dundas's illustrations are simply mind blowing and content from 3 of WA's preeminent orchid researchers makes for a must read and is available from the UWA publishing web site.
