Blog Guelph: The Guelph Virtual Garden Tour - Toad Flower

~ For more images by this photographer, please click the pic and visit their Flickr account ~

Tis the season for garden tours so far be it from Blog Guelph to miss the opportunity to join in.

Today I'll feature six floral delights, some with treasured wee creatures tucked within. And not that I'm trying to get you off line or anything, but seeing the beautiful gardens in the flesh is worth a walk around. I'd recommend Guelph's Arboretum or Riverside Park if you're stumped.

Blog Guelph: Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival

You will not want to miss this weekends exciting Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival . Even if you've never attended a dance event in your life, so I highly encourage you to click through to their website and book yourself a date.

The unpredictable, the challenging, the beautiful: “Pushing Boundaries” is the The Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival’s slogan this year, and it’s one that “runs both ways,” as Catrina von Radecki, one of the artistic directors, insists. “We showcase contemporary dancers who are pushing their own boundaries of aesthetic and physical performance. But, our audience is always saying how surprised they have been to have their own boundaries tweaked, how they have been startled by the ideas and cultures they’re exposed to, and startled by how dance short-circuits their brains, going straight to their hearts before they’ve even begun to grasp what they’re seeing.”

Tickets start at Pay-What-You-Can to $25.00 dollars! Children are extremely welcome. Your soul will expand.

Blog Guelph: GlobalTox 15th Anniversary

I'm very pleased to help GlobalTox share the news of their 15th Anniversary - partly because Mark and Ron are friends of mine and they've created a terrific, international business that has stood the test of time. But also because they model what to me is good community spirit within Guelph and Wellington County.

For starters, GlobalTox is a founding partner to the Waterloo-Wellington Children's Groundwater Festival - which since its inception in 1994, has hosted over 50,000 students in grades 2 - 6. This week long festival which aims to increase and support greater awareness of water at a grassroots level with interactive activities, demonstrations and exhibits, has become even more important as community water issues now take front page news.

Then there's the GlobalTox Award for Excellence - available to students registered at the University of Guelph. Among other Guelph based charities and organizations that benefit from GlobalTox help are Guelph Food Bank, Guelph Minor Baseball, Guelph Marlins Aquatic Club and Michael House plus a selection of national and international organizations.

Happy Anniversary GlobalTox! They claim crystal is the ideal gift for the 15th but in this world of the wild web, I think blogging is even better.

My apologies for tardy posting today.

I'm pleased to feature a new Blog Guelph photographer by way of this terrific image - welcome Brom75. Visit her Flickr site by clicking the photo.

Me thinks that this photograph could easily be a painting. In fact - all five pics chosen for your viewing pleasure on this beautiful Thursday are distinct works of art.

I guess Spring in Guelph brings out the Monet in everyone.
