Today I'm sharing some of my photographs of the Bellagio
It's one of the big features of this hotel - and is free to
vistors - and it currently has an Italian theme.
I'm sharing these photographs as there are some stunning
lemons, made of flowers, which may provide some
inspiration for our Lemon Zest Stamp Set!
I chatted with one of the gardners and he said the whole
conservatory was changed every two months!
The lemons in the first three photographs are made
with real flowers and the flowers are changed everyday!
Photographs 4 and 5 show two of the gardeners
replenishing the flowers of two lemons.
ceiling - photographs 6 - 7, but we couldn't quite make up
our minds how they were made!
Around the Conservatory, there were arches that had
"lemons" growing over them like creepers (ivy-like).
See photograph 8 - top left-hand corner.
This close up photograph 9 will give you a better
idea of what I mean.
We assume these lemons are man-made, probably
plastic, and looks very attractive in real-life.
There are too many other beautiful creations in the
Conservatory to be able to share with you,
not least the "plate" with is made of rice,
lentils butter beans etc.
See photograph 11 for a close up of the upper-most figure
of a cherubim; the white rim top and bottom rim are
probably the easiest to identify as rice.
I'm leaving you with a photograph of one of two swans
on one of the water features; as well as looking stunning,
they also move their heads to look from one side to another!
I hope you've enjoyed this little peep into the Conservatory
at the Bellagio Hotel, and also given you some inspiration
if you have our Lemon Zest Stamp Set!
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
