Thankfully I escaped.

- after they trucked out a lot.
Now where does a gardener go in Las Vegas (especially one who is not very lucky at slot machines)? The largest garden on the Strip: the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.
|The theme at the time? Chinese New Year|
2015 is 'Year of the Goat'
Several Chinese children frolicked through the garden, their clothes entirely made of flowers. Water constantly ran through the displays, and I wonder how often they had to change out the flowers.
All of the thousands of flowers and plants looked incredibly fresh and healthy.
According to their information online, more than 10,000 potted plants are switched out over the course of two weeks in the garden. After their short life, the old plants are turned into mulch for the rest of the Bellagio grounds.
It was impressive to see such a site in the middle of the dessert.
It is also impossible to capture the scope of how large the place was with my little camera phone.
Such a nice vacation! I enjoyed the Conservatory, and I just enjoyed walking around Las Vegas without needing five layers of winter clothing and snow boots!
Ah, back to the Boston area...

Did you hear that after tomorrow's winter storm, we are supposed to break the 107.6" record for the most snow in a season ever? Lucky us...
