Hello and welcome to GBBD where gardeners around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens! I would like to extend my sincerest sympathies for the people  of the Caribbean and the USA who were in the path of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Jose.  Because of Barbados' position in the Atlantic Ocean hurricanes tend to pass to the north or if they do pass over us they are not very developed and are tropical storms. 
 We did get some well needed rain with Harvey but to see the devastation Harvey wrecked in Texas was unimaginable.  
The Caribbean islands of Barbuda, Anguilla, Cayman islands, Turks and Caicos, Cuba, Haiti, BVI, USVI, Bahamas , St. Maarten, St. Bartholomew, Saba  the devastation is around 95%.  This is  a year many will never forget and many who claim that climate change is not real should rethink again. Islanders are strong and will rebuild again. The vegetation will rebound and in a few years providing there are no more hurricanes of that magnitude. 
To see what is blooming in other gardens please go over to visit Carol at may dreams gardens.
Have a great weekend and those of you who can assist the islands that were devasted in any way please do.
