There are some very extensive tropical gardens and preserved areas in Barbados which, though beautiful, can be exhausting in the heat. The beauty of Hunte's garden is in smaller scale which suited our energy at the time. The first impression is theatrical with flowers, flowering trees, trees of all sizes lining the huge bole. Pathways are laid out, with seats and tables in shady spots at different levels where we just sat and enjoyed what was there. Anthony Hunte's only assistant was delightful and knowledgeable, and explained how he and Anthony managed the garden , absolutely full time work, to give the artless and stunning effect. Parts of the garden are still under development. We didn't meet Anthony as he was ill that day, and I suspect rather idiosyncratic with collections of a bygone era which are more than just museum pieces but having significance to the owner. Delicious home made cake and rum punch, lemonade and other drinks were welcome in the convivial environment. It is on the map but not widely advertised, so follow the reliable red on white signs which will get you there.
