It’s officially fall in Las Vegas and that means the Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens is now filled with a bounty of autumnal awesomeness.

This year’s autumn display features more than 8,500 chrysanthemums, ivy, bird’s-nest fern, plum, magnolia trees and up to 2,500 pumpkins of all shapes and sizes (with the largest weighing up to 1,200 pounds).

A 40-foot-tall red wood cider mill churns water as an idle rowboat sits docked in the pond nearby. Back by popular demand, a 20-foot talking tree is stopping tourists in their tracks.

There is also an enormous pumpkin-filled cornucopia and 25-foot-tall fantasy trees made from 450,000 feet of twisted willow branches.

Look up and you’ll see hand-sculpted maple, chestnut, birch and oak leaves along with over-sized pine cones hanging overhead.

See the autumn display at the Bellagio Conservatory seven days a week, 24 hours a day through Nov. 29, 2013. Violin and cello players perform nightly from 5 to 6 p.m.
