Hunte's garden part 2

 It was pure "botanical luxury"  described by Sunita a blogger friend, as I meandered through this haven.
 Under the canopy of Cabbage palms many varieties of ferns, palms and alocaias thrive. These cabbage palms are some of the original inhabitants of this gully. 
 The copper leaf (Chrysothemis pulchella) has been used in this mixed border. 

 These cabbage palms reaching for the light, some I reckon to be over 70ft in height.

 The micro climate in this garden is ideally suited to many plants, they are bigger and  look a lot healthier than those in other parts of the island. 

PS....I have been having problems with blogger, many of my posted photos have disappeared. I will try to upload them again.

  5. Hello Helen,
    Oh, it is just a treat to see such luxurious plant life. Love those photos looking into the gully. I wonder how the garden managed back when you were SO dry earlier this year.

    Ah, the island life... so dreamy.
    **hugs** to you dear!

  6. What a joy it would be to explore such lush surroundings. Honestly I've not seen so many tropical plants in one place outside of a greenhouse here in our northern climes. LOL What luxury.
