Having sneaked off to Barbados for a week meant there were lots of opportunities to explore the native flora! We arrived in the middle of the sugar cane harvest and it was fascinating to see cotton growing commercially and to learn that it's a variety of Hibiscus!
We visited Huntes Gardens
http://www.huntesgardensbarbados.com/ and this garden was one of the most unusual ever visited - anywhere! Visitors enjoy drinks with the owner and we came back with even more ideas! It's always so fascinating seeing our struggling house plants thriving in their native habitats - and an old pair of ubiquitous Felco secateurs!
Oh well - back to reality and time to sow some seeds of our own!
