A taste of Barbados

Frangipani tree

One week and a thousand camera shots – and my firm impression of this Caribbean island island is COLOUR! The variety of flora and fauna is no great surprise given its geographical position, over 3000 hours of annual sunshine and regular short bursts of rainfall. I haven't been able to identify all of the plants but hope that you enjoy the variety as much as I did.

Amazing 'corkscrew' Palm
Only realised I had captured a hummingbird during the edit
Palms that I can't think helping of a skittles!
Now this a hedge I could live with!
Pods of the frangipani flower


Hope yours is a colourful day!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla https://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

  1. Thank you! We went to Bathsheba on one of our days out- it was a national holiday so I guess we saw it a lot busier than normal. Stunning! We didn’t get to those gardens as we were there for less than a week. Thanks for stopping by- I love your blog and those posts about Finland bring back happy memories for me. Anne
