Las Vegas: Bellagio conservatory celebrates summer with color
The conservatory, an oasis in the desert, is bursting with such blooms as hydrangeas and chrysanthemums. Nearby, a dozen rosy Bourke’s parrots (sometimes classified as parakeets) and 50 finches flutter about a greenhouse, while larger-than-life birds made from seeds and other organic materials soar overhead.
The centerpiece of the West Bed is a 26-foot-tall red-and-white lighthouse topped with a working, rotating light. In the North Garden, a giant treehouse overlooks the flower beds that surround a tranquil pond featuring a brick footbridge.
Live musical performances are held 5-6 p.m. daily.
The display is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is free.
