Vegas: Suspending Reality, One Flower at a Time
Upon arriving in Las Vegas most people's realities are suspended. Some visitors may even believe that the hotels are representative of the cities after which they are named. Though there might be gondolas at the Venetian, the nighttime revelers will not see a cluster of fifty pigeons huddles together in Piazza San Marco, trying to keep warm. While some of my trip must abide by the "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" motto, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite things to see there.
The Conservatory at the Bellagio never ceases to amaze me. Every season the hotel changes the theme of its Conservatory, and it never fails to be incredible. I may have nightmares about the strange creature in the bottom picture, but he certainly fits in with the Vegas theme of fantasy.
Next time you are in the city, stop by the Bellagio to see the display, preferably after dark as the magic is just that much greater. You will not be disappointed.
