THE FLOWER OF THE HOLY GHOST. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 26 March 1902

THE FLOWER OF THE HOLY GHOST. * One of the rarest and most wonder ful orchitis is a native of the-Isthmus of Panama. The early Spanish set tlers named it Flor del Espiritu Santo (Flower of the I-Ioly Ghost). I It grows in marshy places from a decayed log, or sometimes from the I crevice of a rock. The lear stalk I reaches several feet in height, and the flower stalk, which grows from the bulb, bear 12 or 15 buds. The flower is pure white, and right in the heart of it is a perfect image of a dove, with drooping .wings, snowy breast, gold tinted head and crimson beak No effort of the imagination is necessary to see the resemblance. It ,is.a:perfect image,^exquisitely beauti ful in tints and gfWng off an- oder i that no perfumer could imitate.. The Spaniards regard it with superstitious I awe, , but the native Indians worship ped it like an idol and would not let J the ground on which it grew be touched..
