Flowers in the boulevards, parties in the street
Other cities that allow boulevard plantings include Cambridge, Guelph, Oakville, Oshawa, Whitby and Kelowna, B.C.
Interest in neighbourhood street parties is also booming, prompting councillors to approve a simpler process for such events.
The number of street parties held each in the city has doubled since the city last reviewed its street policies. In 1994, the city saw about 50 events in the street, including about 15 neighbourhood parties. Today, it sees about 100 events that close streets temporarily, including about 30 neighbourhood bashes.
The city will create a simple guide for how to hold street parties, simplify road closures, and pay for insurance for events of fewer than 200 people.
"I think it's a step in the right direction," said Coun. Kelly Galloway-Sealock. "I think this process will make things a lot clearer for people, and hopefully that translates into more parties."
The city has already made a number of changes flowing from the new neighbourhood strategy: increasing the number and size of grants for neighbourhood events or projects; creating guides to help residents set up neighbourhood markets, community gardens and local traffic calming; giving residents more say over how neighbourhood parks should be developed; and creating a website, lovemyhood.ca, with tips and ideas for community events.

Burns and blindness: Toxic giant hogweed plant spreading in Canada
C."Nobody's really sure when it arrived here. It was probably introduced as an ornamental plant and it is starting to slowly spread," said Kraus from Guelph, Ont."It's possible people are moving it from garden to garden. They see it in their aunt's garden and they think it's this wonderful plant, and they're collecting seeds and moving it to another location, which is something we definitely don't want people to do."In 2015, five children in England were reportedly burned in two separate incidents after coming into contact with giant hogweed in public parks.Often mistaken for the similar-looking cow parsnip, it can be seen growing in gardens, along roadsides, in ditches and on the shores of rivers and streams. Its clear sap can cause blistering third-degree burns and even permanent blindness if it touches the body and is then exposed to the sun, through a phototoxic reaction."It's very nasty. It can cause huge water blisters — almost like boils — that erupt on your skin," said Todd Boland, a research horticulturist at Memorial University's Botanical Garden in St. John's, N.L."It may be the next day before you start to see the effects. That's the funny thing about this. It's not like it's an instant thing. It takes awhile and you have to have repeated exposure to the sun."But simply touching the plant is not dangerous, Boland stressed. It's the sap that is problematic and washing your body and clothes after exposure can prevent the phototoxic reaction."If you get it in your eye, it can lead to permanent blindness, but that's pretty rare. You'd be hard-pressed to get it in your eye unless you were rolling around in the plant," said Boland, adding that giant hogweed can be found i... (Times Colonist)Feb 9, 2017
Breathing life back into your flowers
GUELPH — Most people can agree that beautiful, fresh flowers are fantastic for brightening up our day, our spring gardens and even the rooms in our homes. But plants are living, breathing things, and as is the wondrous circle of life, flowers bloom, grow and die.
Jesseline Gough, marketing co-ordinator at pickOntario explains why some of us are being a little too hasty, however, with our flowers once their life cycle has come to an end.
“There are so many fun and different ways to recycle and preserve flowers once they die,” says Gough. “People are so used to throwing them out without giving their plants a second thought; without knowing that there is still some life left in them!”
To make the absolute most out of those gorgeous arrangements and bouquets (even in their afterlife), Gough has provided some creative methods for reusing local flowers:

Spicing up your winter-decor with Ontario-grown flowers and plants
GUELPH — With cooler weather and longer nights finally here, Canadians everywhere are reminded that the holiday season is upon us.
Everyone is looking forward to that white and frosty Christmas Eve, surrounded by family and friends by the fireplace, holding a hot cup of cocoa.

And no, it is not all about poinsettias.
