Things You Don’t See Everyday


Promethea silkmoth in Colorado

Promethea silkmoth sighted this summer at the B&B

Recently we had our four-year-old granddaughter staying and playing at the Arbor House Inn B&B. She tends to romp around picking flowers and playing with Elmo, the resident cat on property. One evening, she knelt down next to one of the trees and pointed. This is what she had discovered, a Promethea silkmoth as large as an iPhone. Having never seen one before, we researched and Googled to discover that they are actually an east coast insect. This poor little guy had been blown way off course! We don’t know where he was trying to go but we sure hope he gets there.

Behind the Scenes – The AHI Greenhouse

Evidence of Laurie’s green thumb

If for some reason if you can’t find innkeeper Laurie Bratton, check the greenhouse. Located on the three acre property, the big dome is tucked behind the garage and the secret to the gourmet breakfasts at the Arbor House Inn Bed & Breakfast on the River. In the dome can be found fresh spices such as thyme, oregano and chives. Green spinach, cherry tomatoes as sweet as candy, and cilantro are staples at the B&B greenhouse. Laurie says she doesn’t have a green thumb, but we know otherwise. Enjoy!
