Springtime in the Conservatory
by Jennifer AlLee
Before moving to Las Vegas, my only interaction with a conservatory had been when Professor Plum did it in the Conservatory with the lead pipe. (Clue, anyone?) But now, a twenty minute drive gets me to the lovely conservatory at the Bellagio. Famous for its dancing fountains, the Bellagio also has an ever-changing seasonal display of floral delights. Today, just for fun, I'd like to give you a tour of the latest Springtime sensation. This way, please...
|Wooden shoes the size of a Mini-Cooper!|
|What a lovely windmill|
|Pretty sure this mama swan is about five feet tall.|
|No riding this carousel... it's just for looking at.|
|I do not like bees.... but I'll make an exception this once.|
|I really should have noted what kind of flowers these are.|
Aren't they pretty?
|Tulips in the back, hyacinth in the front.|
|More pretty tulips... makes me want to go out and buy some bulbs.|
