today, nicolas and i ventured out a little further from our hotel,
and explored the natural beauty of barbados.
we visited hunte's gardens, which was like an unexpected jewel in the midst
of field after field of sugar cane. with classical music spilling over the
sound of birds singing, and sunlight splashing over every dazzling plant,
it seemed the whole flowering forest would swallow us whole
and we would gladly let it.
and when the garden owner/ expert horticulturalist, anthony hunte,
invited us up to his home for a drink and a chat, i quickly fell in love
with his impressive miss havisham-esque grounds, which reveal the
life of a person who is well-traveled and well-versed in the
art of plant arrangement.
