Because it is finally spring....

.........and because they only bloom for about a week, then turn back into big bushes.

This lilac bush is about 7 or so feet tall, and sits in the corner of my front yard.

We have never been into the conservatory at the Bellagio. Very pretty!! I loved all the flowers, although the tulips were not quite blooming yet. They have some neat water features where jets of water stream over your head and look solid because the water is flowing so smoothly. Also a butterfly garden in the middle of the area, and some massive butterfly artwork flying overhead.

Lots of cool buildings and amazing sights. We all went to the MGM to see KA, a Cirque du Soleil show with a martial arts theme. They had a beautiful theater with gorgeous sort of cat-walks on the sides that later became part of the show. The floor of the stage does all sorts of crazy things--it lifts up and spins and stands on end and disappears.....and is like 100 feet wide!! Must be a big pit back there to allow for such things. The show was pretty cool.

Last day in Vegas....did lots of walking around, checked out the LOVE store (Ethan wanted the soundtrack CD), Sabrina and Matt got some tickets for the show that night, and the Amersons headed home.
