Our herbs here at the Rosemont Inn are growing in a small corner outside our back kitchen door. It is a mostly shady/partly sunny space that is too wet in Winter and Spring and too dry in Summer and …

Rose-petal turn down, a sparkling beverage and Sweet Escapes chocolates made the event extra special. Hidden cameras provided by Brendon captured the surprise proposal. He sent us everything he wanted to have in the room ahead of time and …
