Gardener takes a break
Did a little tourism this last week as Mr. C. and I had guests from Canada. Toured California and out to Las Vegas, Nevada. I usually like to stop at the Conservatory at the Bellagio, and this display was extraordinary! I liked the miniature railroad garden at the SF Flower show this last March, but this topped it by a mile! The small model buildings in the display were made out of plant "bits". One example is the domes on buildings were made out of decorative gourds. And the variety of bromeliads, orchids and tillandsias were stunning as many of them were in bloom.
