The white bird of paradise is not nearly as colorful as the traditional orange one, but it flaunts the same 'show' as its counterpart. It is often artfully placed in a landscaped area for a dramatic and tropical effect - but, beware, it can be very invasive, expanding beyond desire. It is easy to be duped by the 'halo effect' whereby the beauty or pleasant look of a person or object is translated to all characteristics and/or overall perception as being attractive. Taking a critical eye to see both the pros and cons (or strengths and weaknesses) allows a truer meaning. Credit Union Drive Up, Horseshoe Dr., Naples, FL
