This has been a very harsh Minnesota winter, and an escape was necessary.  The first time I was in Barbados was about 40 years ago, and the last time was a single-day stop when we were on a Caribbean cruise quite a few years ago.  It was a good time to return.  

The contrast between Minnesota's colors (black, brown, gray and white) and Barbados' (brillant, tropical) is dramatic.  The gardens in Minnesota have been covered with snow for months; but the gardens in Barbados were spectacular.  

Huntes Gardens, created by Anthony Hunte, a noted horticlturist,  is centrally located in the parish of St. Joseph, in an unusual sink hole-type gully.   The garden is less about horticultural species and their nomenclature, and much, much more about dramatic landscapes.  Enjoy these photos from our visit.  For more photos and information visit Hunte's Gardens website.  Click on a picture to enlarge it.
