Bamboo And Orchids

Last November Clark moved into his new home in southeast Florida with its own secret  garden.  It is a quiet place of tropical plants, stands of bamboo, a fountain and statues of Buddha.  Strategically placed throughout the garden are carefully planted orchids.  After several days of cooler weather and rain followed by a return of normal “winter” warmth came some blooms.

About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)
