The Bellagio in Las Vegas is celebrating the change in seasons by rotating more than 75,000 flowers and 22,265 plants during a new exhibition in The Strip, the Las Vegas Sun reports.

"It is incredible," photographer Tom Donoghue told the news source." A masterpiece of colors and so visual to the eye and the lens. Everybody is going to be knocked out by its beauty. Mother Nature and the Bellagio gardeners have created pure magic."

In the west bed, there is a cider mill, a pond with river rock and a number of pumpkins weighing up to 1,000 pounds. The east bed has a family of topiary-type horses, made from more than 26,000 flowers and plants. The north bed features a 15-foot scarecrow with a 4-foot pumpkin made of 3,000 orange carnations. The scene is framed by a massive cornucopia made from curly willow branches that reaches 20 feet into the air.

The south bed has a 20-foot-tall talking tree and an 1870 high-wheeled wagon covered by an apple-filled canopy. There is also a 3-foot tall apple made from 1,750 red roses.

You can make a stunning display of fall flowers in your own home with arrangements made from autumn flowers like chrysanthemums and sunflowers.
