We have a night blooming cereus in our sunroom, also known as a "queen of the night" as it only blooms at night for a few hours. This week it blessed up with a plant usually only blooms about once a year, so I only have one time a year to enjoy and photograph it! I love taking pictures of the bloom, it is so unusual, and has the most amazing fragrance that fills the sunroom as it blooms. I hope you enjoy a few of my favorite shots from this weeks blooming.

Now that the spell of unseasonable hot and humid weather from the last week is behind us, I have been able to get out and spend a little time in the gardens. The flowers are blooming like crazy, and I thought you might like to see some of the color in our gardens this time of year.  The linden tree is all leafed out, and soon will be sporting a gorgeous white profusion of flowers, with that unbelievable sweet fragrance that the linden tree possesses. If you aren't visiting when the tree is blooming, then you can experience the sweet perfume of the tree captured in the Baudelaire linden flower soap and shampoo in the guest bathrooms. To prolong the memory, you can purchase other Baudelaire body care  products with the linden flower fragrance  at the inn. 

Along with the blooming flowers, Rockport is bursting with the wonderful sounds of the Rockport Chamber Music Festival concerts. We have had several musicians stay with us, and have enjoyed some of their music drifting out of their rooms as they warm up and rehearse for their upcoming performance.  The festival continues through the month of June Thursday through Sundays, with the closing performance on July 2nd.

Call now to make your reservations and enjoy this profusion of beauty for yourself!

Well, we have been having some exciting times here in Rockport! The crew from Disney was in town filming a new romantic comedy called "The Proposal" starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. The film takes place in Sitka, Alaska and Rockport has been transformed to this Alaskan seaside village. It's been a bit strange to have totem poles in dock square, and Sitka, Alaska banners hanging from the signposts....but I will let you be the judge of that with photos of our lovely town....there have been a lot of star sightings around town of Sandra, Ryan, Mary Steenbergen (wonder where Ted Danson was?) and Betty White, as well as Sandra's husband, Jesse James. I was not so fortunate to see anyone famous, but it was exciting all the same! Check out the Motif #1, the Fish Shack, the Greenery, the Future home of the Rockport Chamber Music Festival and several other local shops....looks familiar.....with a twist! 

I just love this last photo with the's been a fun week or so!

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all our guests, family and friends! We hope you had an enjoyable celebration to ring in the New Year! We had a small but mighty celebration here this year, going out to enjoy the New Years Rockport Eve celebration, then coming back and toasting in 2008! My friend Morgan was able to join us at the last minute, and whipped out these fabulous little masks for us to wear!! Don't we look cute? I thought my mask made me look quite "owlish", and matched my haircolor completing "the look"!
We had a great time, and as everyone checked out this morning, I told them all to "Make it Great in 2008!"

Start making your plans now to come and stay at the Linden Tree Inn this year! Come and taste the "legendary" scones (as seen on Boston's MyFox ZipTrip to Rockport) Come to experience our Anglo-American hospitality for yourself, and you will see why it is so easy to fall in love with the Linden Tree Inn and Rockport! We look forward to seeing you in 2008!
