Bellagio Botanical Gardens Spring Display

Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden is currently having their "Spring Celebration Show" on display through May 11. After enjoying lunch at Bahama Breeze with (my husband's mom), Maggie, (aunt) Jan, and (grandma) Nancy, we made our way to the Italian themed casino to admire the spring display.Before I could see the garden display, I could smell the scent of Easter Lillies and hyacinths wafting through the air.

Though we visited the garden this past Saturday, March 22, not everything was in bloom yet; an indication that the display must be relatively pretty new.
I love Mr. Tree...I wonder who they modeled him after?
So many flowers all around us. I wish I could take them all home!
As usual, everything was larger than life, from the hand-painted parasols to the creatures in the garden. The red shell ladybug is made up of 1,300 roses!
I thought these watering cans were neat, sprinkling water onto the garden.

Afterwards, we went to visit the world's largest chocolate fountain. More photos here on Flickr. Then our beautiful day came to a closure as we parted and I went home to get ready for dinner at Lawry's with my sweetheart.
