All about BarbadosIt mainly depends on the amount of rain how the vegetation looks like. During the summer months the island can look rather dry and there can be fires in the dried fields, but during other periods (september until may) Barbados is covered with tropical flowers. Everywhere are walls overflowing with masses of flowers of all colours, for example hibiscus, different types of palm trees are swaying in the winds.
Banana plants, citrus trees, mango trees, which seem to barly carry the big load of fruit, breadfruit trees, even starfruit - and pomme granade trees are to see all over the place. As well the colored leaves of simple bushes look very pretty. Any public green gets cared about meticulously.
A wonderful impression is the flamboyant tree, the national flower of Barbados with its red flowers.
It is worth visiting Andromeda Gardens and Flower Forest, both in St. Joseph.
In the world of animals it s a paradise to watch too, from your breakfast table you can watch shiny hummingbirds, on your way to the beach you can watch red crabs who clean their holes or the green lizards waiting for insects. If you look out careful, you will see geckos and a tree frog on a leaf in the evenings.
You can see funny hectic black birds, the lovely brownish zenaida doves and the little bullfinches everywhere, in the evening the bats come out to feed on insects.
Luckily the turtles get protected and there are quite a few spots on the beaches where they return and lay eggs.
