Several times a year I visit the Botanical Gardens at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.  Not only this is a beautiful hotel notorious for its magnificent fountains, but I particularly enjoy seeing the flowers at the gardens.  It is a small indoor garden, but a very beautiful space worth visiting.

The botanical gardens change with the season, which includes Chinese New Year, Summer Garden, Fall Harvest and Winter Holiday.  My most recent visit was to the Summer Garden. 

Each season the elaborated decorations are spectacular.  I never get tired of visiting these gardens and not once have I been disappointed.  

With the creativity of the gardeners, horticulturalists and landscape architects in charge of this garden, for me, more than a garden, this is an art exhibition made with flowers. The work involved, dedication, skills and eye for detail of the garden staff is really impressive.

The flowers are watered by hand each day.  Between the hours of 10:30 am to 11:30 am, Mr. & Mrs. Green Thumb are there to answer questions about the garden.  From 5 pm to 6 pm, music performers will delight you with great tunes making your visit even more enjoyable.  

Always make a point to visit the Botanical Gardens at the Bellagio when you are in Las Vegas.  It's stunning, it smells good, it opens 24 hours a day and it's free.
