The Bellagio Conservatory Says Goodbye to Summer

This entry was posted in Attractions on by .

Where I live in Vermont, when summer turns to fall, it’s obvious: The nights grow crisp and cold, frost falls on the lawn overnight, and the leaves change from lush green to vibrant reds, yellows, and oranges. Honking flocks of geese fly by overhead, making their way South for the winter, and the smell of smoke from wood stoves permeates the air. For those of us who might miss the more subtle signs of the changing of the seasons in a desert locale like Las Vegas, the Bellagio Resort and Casino provides a helping hand: The Conservatory gardens change with the seasons, and they are already saying goodbye summer, hello fall.

Here’s a pictorial last blast of summer, taken at the Bellagio during Labor Day Week. This year’s summer display had some familiar elements I’ve seen before–the ferris wheel, the fishing bears–along with some great new visuals. I won’t get to see this year’s fall display, but if you do, please let me know how you like it in the comments below. Cheers!

I loved this simple, yet effective, visual of summer:

I wondered what the display below had to do with summer; turns out it was a playful take on Armand Guillaumin’s painting Vue de Pontcharra Plaine de L’Isere le Soir (1901), made of flowers, of course:

The conservatory had an aviary with living birds in it, but here are two of the fake kind:

Funky-looking tree, eh? It’s made of willow branches.

The patriotic element this year was represented in this eagle and liberty bell:

Returning favorites included the fishing bears and the towering ferris wheel with the Bellagio crest on it:
