Hubby and I took his mother to a mystical place yesterday, Hunte's Gardens in the parish of St. Joseph. Located deep in a gully and brought to life by the owner Anthony Hunte a pioneer landscape artist and nurseryman.
 This is a must for anyone who loves gardens. You can bring a picnic basket and have lunch with nature.  
Admission $30.00 BDS or $15.00 USD


  1. Wow, what a fantastic garden, so lush and colourful.

  2. Thanks for this post ~ Hunte's is one of my favorite botanical gardens and haven't been there in years. Brings back great memories!

  3. Still looks great! I readily await the part 2.
