As we entered the Bellagio Gardens we were greeted by this beautiful horse. It is so festive in the field of flowers, apples and pumpkins.
Close to the horse is a trough full of apples. It also has water that sprouts up amongst the apples.
There were squirrels in the branches of the talking tree. The acorns were nearly as big as the squirrels.
The Talking Tree is so unique. The eyes move and he talks directly to you. It is a wonderful work of art. It is fun to watch the little ones gaze at him in amazement.
To the left of the Talking Tree, a colt was resting in the field of flowers. It is oh so beautiful.
Across the pond, Smokey the bear and Smokey Jr. were in attendance.
The waterwheel at the mill is magnificent. I always take several pictures, but I have yet to capture what I see. It evokes so many memories and emotions.
Look closely and you will see a live bird in the Fire Island Chrysanthemums. There were several birds in the area of the cafe. I’m not sure who was more excited, the birds or the customers.
The pumpkins are beautiful and some of them very large. According to the sign, the pumpkins are gown specifically for the Bellagio. The largest ones weigh between 600-1000 pounds.
Red Tree Yellow Sky by Georgia O’Keeffe is the painting displayed in flowers. It is very nice and a tribute to the master herself.
The ENT – a name derived from the Anglo Saxton word for giant, are mythical creatures from middle earth closely related to Talking Trees.
We were so excited to see two young ents have joined the fall celebration. As you can see, they too are enjoying the bountiful harvest at the Bellagio.
Steve and I always enjoy visiting the Bellagio Gardens. Although it is always busy, as you can see in the picture, people are happy and friendly. We are forever thankful to the Bellagio for making this wonderful experience available and free to the public. It truly is a treasured gift. If you don’t have the opportunity to visit the gardens in person, we hope you will enjoy these pictures.
