LAS VEGAS BABY ! – LAS VEGAS , NEVADA – A QUIET OASIS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DESERT, BELLAGIO CONSERVATORY AND BOTANICAL GARDENS .

You’ve  been  in  Las  Vegas  for  three  days  or so ,  but  it seems  longer  because  there’s  so much  to  do  and so many places  to  see.

You  can’t  believe  that  you’re  actually  on a  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  Las  Vegas ,  but  you  are.

You gambled  a little ,  you ate a  lot  at the  buffets ,  but most  of  all  this  is  Las Vegas ,  so you definitely  did a lot of  partying .

Way too  much  maybe.

Now  you just  want  to  get  a little  peace and  quiet  here .

Just a  little ,  if that’s  possible .

Your  concierge  thinks  that  he knows  just the  place .

The Bellagio  Hotel  on the  Las  Vegas  Strip .

You’ve  already  been  there  before .

That’s  the  one with the  dancing  water fountains that  look  oh so  beautiful  at night ,  just like  the  rest of  the  Las Vegas  Strip  does .

”  No ,  it’s  the  Bellagio  Conservatory  and  Botanical  Gardens   that’s  inside  of  the  Bellagio , ”  he says .

How did  you  miss this ,  you wonder ?

Easy ,  you  didn’t  go inside  of  the  Bellagio ,  as it looked  just  way  too  elegant  for  your  taste .

Very high end and sophisticated ,  you think.

Since the Bellagio  isn’t  far  from the  hotel  that  you’re  staying  at ,  you’re  going  to  walk there, even though  you’re  very tired.

You’ve  been  walking  all day and you just know  that you haven’t  seen all of  this  place .

The Bellagio  does look oh so fancy from the  revolving  front door  to the   Dale  Chuily  chandelier  in the  lobby .

You  see the  signs for  the  Conservatory  and  Botanical  Gardens  right  in  front  of  you .

You  realize  that  you  aren’t  the  only  person  who’s  going  there .

The  Bellagio  Conservatory  and  Botanical  Gardens  are  one  of  the  top free attractions  in  the  city ,  and as you can  tell ,  it draws  a lot of  visitors .

You  can’t  believe  all the  of the  beautiful  flower arrangements  that are in front  of  you .

You  heard  that  the  conservatory  changes during  the  seasons  and you can just imagine  how it looks  during winter time  as well as  Chinese New Year .

You  know  that for Christmas ,  this  place must go all out with  the  flower  arrangements .

Right now  though ,  it’s  summertime  and  the  lavender ,  yellow ,  orange ,  blue  and  red  flowers  in front  of  you  are simply  breathe  taking .

You smile  to yourself  and think that who ever does these arrangements  isn’t  getting  paid  enough  for all this  work .

You  find  a  bench  nearby  and  sit  down ,  still  admiring  the  flower  arrangements  all around  you .

Your  concierge  was right .

This is  a  very  quiet  place in spite  of  all  the  people  that are  here.

No one  is  being  loud ,  nor is there loud music  or music  of any kind  being  played  here.

People  are  taking  pictures  and  just  admiring  the  scene .

Lots of  selfies  are being  taken ,  that’s  the  only  sound  you hear, people  posing  that perfect  shot.

For the  hour or so that you  were here, admiring  the  flowers and the objects  around them, the Bellagio  Conservatory  and  Botanical  Gardens  was an oasis  of  quiet  in that  hectic  city  in the  desert .
