On Mushrooms At The Bellagio





Well not exactly ‘on’, more like beside, but either way there is a bit of an Alice in Wonderland thing going on. The Bellagio has four amazing themed displays in the Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, year round, and is presently showing Spring. Using thousands of flowers, moving insects and water fountains dripping off leaves and glass balls it is spectacularly executed.








At the forefront, the fantasy flower pot reaches 15 feet high and is toppled over with sunflowers spilling out. The hand spade is 28 feet tall and reaches the top of the atrium where the bees, butterflies, fireflies and hot air balloons linger in mid air.


The snails and bees are created using dried chrysanthemums, roses and sunflowers. The ladybugs are made with fresh brightly colored chrysanthemums.

This reminds me of the time when I visited Disneyworld's Honey I shrunk the kid area... it was sooo fun!

Your pictures and write up makes me wish I could see the exhibition in person. Definately "Alice in Wonderland" feel about it.
It has been overcast in my city for the past few days, but today I had sunshine with my morning coffee.
