Hunte’s Gardens, Part deux

Now the really yummy (for me) part.

I am sure that anyone who reads my blog knows that while I love plants, I am a huge, huge fan of decorative objects in the garden. If money was no object, I would have a few of these…



I have a spot all picked out at Kilbourne Grove for this,

Anthony Hunte also has a lovely nursery as well, if I only had a garden,  I am sure that I would have spent quite a few dollars,

I would love to be able to bring back a couple of these as a souvenir of my time in Barbados, hopefully they don’t weigh too much, ha ha.

If you missed part 1, you can read it here.

    I liked the gargoyle too. You never see them looking contemplative.

    I think it takes a lush tropical environment to really showcase the urns, statues, and gargoyles. They look so right and so appropriate in these green leafy, steamy settings!

    I think the urns and the statues and the fountain all look wonderful, especially amidst the lush and colorful foliage! I once carried a small but heavy concrete ornament onto an airplane. I wouldn’t do it again.

    I love the female statue that looks like she’s holding a red flower in her arm. Everything is so lush there the statuary comes alive in the plants.

    I love the urns and the female statue. Of course the plants really enhance the look. All lush and tastefully done. Lovely.

    I’d go with the Laughing Buddha – good cure for homesickness, er gardensickness?

    Such beautiful urns and statues, if I had the space and $$ I would take them all home too!! I think the lion fountain would be stunning at KG, and go so well with your guardians. 🙂

    Maybe its a male thing (!!), but I am thinking less is more?

    I love a good artifact or container in the garden. Thanks for the post.

    What a great set of pictures. I never thought I was one for classical statues, but lately I have begun to reconsider….

    Everything looks so lush and sets off the urns and statues beautifully, love the happy buddha, he would make anyone smile ! You have certainly found a super place there.

    Loved the photos! I’m also a great fan of urns and statues and other garden containers and ornaments–even more so since my husband turned the small porch off of my office into a greenhouse and, being lazy, I leave plants in their containers and shift them to the garden for the summer (moving them about to fill in as bare spots inevitably appear) and then returning them to their glassed in perch for the winter.

      Lucky you to have your own greenhouse, one day… I used to do that to, keep a lot of plants in the container. I actually kept my Japanese Maples in pots, and just sunk tham into the Kitchen Garden for the winter.

    Loved the photos! I am also a great fan of interesting garden ornaments and pots and urns, particularly since my husband (bless him) turned a small porch off my office into a greenhouse. I tote the plants in their pots out to my garden in spring (and shift them about all summer to cover the inevitable dead spots), returning them to the greenhouse in the fall.
