    It might not feel like the seasons have changed in your part of the world quite yet, but spring has definitely sprunged in Las Vegas.

    It’s possible this flower is of the xanthorhizus variety, because anything is possible, even though it’s highly unlikely.

    After suffering through months of frigid weather (winter temperatures occasionally dipped below 65 degrees), Sin City is ready to embrace the season of renewal (Vegas spa treatment, anyone?) and rebirth.

    It’s possible these flowers are not native to Las Vegas, desertwise.

    Warm weather means pool season is upon us, and Vegas visitors are already snatching up pool packages at some of the Strip’s best pool-errific (not a real world) resorts.

    As always, the change in seasons has been reflected in the new spring display at the Conservatory & Botanical Gardens at the Bellagio.

    Somebody’s got a green thumb. They would not be this blog.

    The gardens are one of the most popular free things to do in Las Vegas, and are just a short stroll from Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Paris Las Vegas and Bally’s.

    It’s getting spring all up in here, up in here.

    The Conservatory’s spring display features a 26-foot windmill, a colorful, revolving carousel and more than 8,200 flowers, several of which are featured in this blog post. The seasonal display will be up until May 13. A new addition this year: Live music from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

    It’s just like being in a charming Dutch village, but without the uncomfortable wooden shoes.

    Bio: The Pulse of Vegas blog includes references to “we” often. But it’s actually written by one (incredibly modest) individual, Scott Roeben, a humorist, photographer, author and longtime Las Vegas resident. “We should probably interview ourselves sometime. We find us fascinating,” he says. The Pulse of Vegas blog is the official Las Vegas blog of Caesars Entertainment, the folks who run a bevy of Las Vegas hotels. It received the inaugural “Most Valuable Las Vegas Blogger” award by CBS Local/KXNT News Radio.
