March 2019 - Issue 231

With temperatures hovering around the -26 C level for what feels like years (and well below that with the wind chill), winter is, indeed, here! No matter what little comfort we can take from Balzac Billy’s prediction of an early spring, the frigid temperatures and snowy landscape might make some expect to see Game of Thrones’ White Walkers and dragons on our prairie tundra.

But the hint of spring is there and beginning to bud. With the Calgary Home + Garden Show coming to town, it is a sure-fire reminder that warmer weather will be here shortly. We even got to talk with Canada’s garden guru, Carson Arthur, for his advise in getting your condo or backyard garden ready
for the spring. He is one of the headliners in the coming Calgary Home + Garden Show and his insights for growing your garden — even if you are not a green thumb — are quite enlightening. He is as engaging and lively as he is on TV, so don’t forget to check him out at the show, hope to see you all there.

Another reminder that spring is nigh is the rush of new show home openings. Our cover feature on the opening of StreetSide Developments’ new Evanston Park marks the start of the annual spring show home openings. Evanston Park is all about park-side living, and the promise it holds — especially come spring — is tantalizing.

We also have ARRIVE at Sage Meadows opening their new show home in March, and its developers, Partners Development Group, is taking great strides in offering some of the best environment-friendly and affordable — not to mention, luxurious — townhomes in the northwest. We also talk about
Honeyycomb’s new Upper Mission Townhomes, one of the most anticipated inner-city developments with its promise of spectacular downtown views from their rooftop patios. And then, there is Sanderson Ridge on Fish Creek Park that has quickly created a tight-knit community among its residents with
the fabulous in-house amenities they offer.

Our very own Cristina Loc channels her inner-Marie-Kondo as she offers up her spring-cleaning tips and wisdom gathered through years of being a super-meticulous organizer. We also have our Focus On photo feature on pet accessories and Brandi Holmes’ In The City take on pet care.

As I write this, the city is still under an extreme cold warning and it looks like this cold snap will be with us for the next little while. But, hey, at least the Calgary Flames are doing great, right?
