Autumn comes to the Springs Preserve

It’s not just spring that brings out the blooms at the Springs Preserve. The 180-acre cultural and historical attraction is awash in botanical color all year long. Fall brings a unique set of blooming plants to the Springs Preserve gardens including the familiar (roses) and the unique (calliandra, also known as the desert fairy duster). Enjoy this pictoral look at autumn at the Springs Preserve.

I'm one of a rare breed of folks, a native Las Vegan. That's Las Vegan, not Vegan. Being born in Las Vegas has endowed me with crazy Vegas skills - must be all the exposure to neon. I'm a human casino GPS, celebrity locator (You never know who you'll meet in a casino elevator, right Richard Branson?) and tip calculator. My mom taught me probability and statistics with decommissioned casino dice. When I walk through a hotel, tourists think I work there. Maybe it's my smile, my purposeful walk or my friendly answers. Maybe it's just the black suit. But whatever the reason, gives me the chance to exercise my Vegas super powers every day. Now if I could just predict when Megabucks would hit... You can find me on Google+ and Twitter.
