Having grown up in the Caribbean, I take a lot of natural things regarding nature for granted as I grew up with them all around me. But as I travel, I realize that some people have no idea what things are as they’ve never seen them before. In this case Caribbean plants.

 

As I continue my series on meeting people and telling their stories on my YouTube Channel, here’s Ray’s.

 

I ran into Ray, who is the Landscape Manager at the beautiful Verandah Resort and Spa in Antigua and Barbuda. ( I was guest of the resort and the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism and Traverse Events from the U.K.).

 

He was kind enough to give me a quick unplanned 8 minutes tour of the property from a horticultural perspective. And I learned a tremendous amount just from this short tour.

 

Come ride with me and enjoy. Can you recognize any of the plants?
