When we visited Barbados to do location photography for our upcoming book Exotic Gardens of the Eastern Caribbean, among many other places we visited fantastic Hunte’s Gardens. It is quite unusual garden, and one of the finest highlights of our new book. Run by Anthony Hunte, a veteran of horticulture related works, it is a marvel.
What’s really nice and different about it – he plays his favourite classical music through several outdoor speakers, creating almost surreal ambiance and unusual background for the garden visitors.
Anthony knows well how to make maximum visual impact too, and his garden will make one of the longest chapters of our new book – so many good photos, we simply couldn’t decide to not show as many as possible. He is one of main reasons for this book being rather thick, similarly to our Tropical Homes of the Eastern Caribbean book.
Photos shown in this post are not included in the book as they are here, as these are not edited as nicely as photos in our book – but they show well this unusual place. (Please keep in mind we share with you copyrighted pics, and respect that. Thanks!)
When you see these densely planted palms – would you believe this garden is only… 6 years old?
OK, have to go back to my work, still editing amazing photos from the Montreal Estate Gardens on St Vincent.

Until the next one! Cheers!
