Bellagio Botanical Garden


IMG_0451, originally uploaded by M'roy.

Across the lobby from the front desk is an opening through which a glass ceiling rises up 50 feet. This is the beautiful conservatory. The ceiling framework and beams are the sculpted green metal of oxidized copper, called verde, set in floral patterns.

In February with the celebration of the Chinese New Year, the garden was all decked in Chinese symbols, all gold and red colors of plants, ox, gold coins, etc.

The garden changes looks every season.

A fantastic scene and what a photo opportunity. One has to admire the "over the top" approach made to attract people to their business. Fine shot.
