April is Daffodil Month in Canada

April is Daffodil Month in Canada

April is Daffodil Month, which is the Canadian Cancer Society ‘s national fundraising campaign for the fight against cancer.

The daffodil is a symbol of strength and courage in the fight against cancer.

In my Toronto neighbourhood, there is a patch of daffodils in our local park to remember those who passed because of cancer, to celebrate cancer survivors, and to give courage to those who are fighting cancer at present.

Cancer can be beaten.

This stunning sculpture of Venus of the Sea can be found not in a gallery, but in my neighborhood here in Toronto.  It is just standing there in front of a neighbor’s house.

I passed by this beautiful Venus sculpture every time I walked to the park.  But the other day, I saw that the owner had built a steel fence surrounding his property… I guess to prevent passersby like me from taking pictures.  Nah!  I think they did it to prevent people from touching their statue.  I swear, I didn’t touch their statue.  I only took photos.  But I was tempted.
