Who doesn’t enjoy tropical palms, bright jungle flowers and a mango margarita?
Well, in the words of that smooth crooner of the late 70’s Meatloaf “Two out of three ain’t bad.” (And, actually, the last one can easily be realized by a personal trip to Ola Brisa Gardens!)
But of the former two, if unable to be here in person, what better way to vicariously bask in our balmy environs no matter where one might be this winter than through graphic word pictures and great photography?
This is a fast and easy way to order Volumes I and II of our award winning book series “The Civilized Jungle”.
We have created a small web site, Planting Tropical Roots that will provide more details about the series, a page dedicated to your purchase options, a short author’s bio and our contact information. The site is simple and easy (like us)!
Enjoy. (And we look forward to your physical visit here at Ola Brisa Gardens!)
Tommy Clarkson is a bit of a renaissance man. He’s lived and worked in locales as disparate as the 1.2 square mile island of Kwajalein to war-torn Iraq, from aboard he and Patty’s boat berthed out of Sea Bright, NJ to Thailand, Germany, Hawaii and Viet Nam; He’s taught classes and courses on creative writing and mass communications from the elementary grades to graduate level; He’s spoken to a wide array of meetings, conferences and assemblages on topics as varied as Buddhism, strategic marketing and tropical plants; In the latter category he and Patty’s recently book, “The Civilized Jungle” – written for the lay gardener – has been heralded as “the best tropical plant book in the last ten years”; And, according to Trip Advisor, their spectacular tropical creation – Ola Brisa Gardens – is the “Number One Tour destination in Manzanillo”.
