Every year Dave and I celebrate our wedding anniversary at the Inn at Weston in Weston, where we were married in 2004. When we visit the inn, we always take a tour of the orchid greenhouse on the property.
Innkeeper Bob Aldrich has been growing orchids for 20 years and owns a private orchid collection that includes more than 500 different species. Bob and his wife Linda previously had medical careers in New Jersey before moving to Vermont in 2001 to realize their dream of running an inn. For Bob, tending to the orchid greenhouse is an added bonus.
