There’s never been a better time to head out west — to the beautiful community of Secord, in Edmonton’s changing far end of the city.

Not too long ago, the west end was defined by classic neighbourhoods like Belmead and Aldergrove and that shop till you drop world-famous West Edmonton Mall.  Fast forward a couple of decades, new areas have sprung up, linked by Anthony Henday Drive, making it easier than ever for families to move further from the core.  This new area offers fine affordable houses, modern day retail and transportation, and the virtues of a happy simple family life which keep homeowners rolling in to the naturally friendly, lush neighbourhood of Secord.

Rooted in the outskirts of Edmonton for over ten years, the popular Secord

Bright, Bold & with an Entrepreneurial Spirit.  That’s the perfect definition of Edmonton’s popular urban centric Westmount neighbourhood.   Located off Groat Road and minutes from the university and downtown, it includes the popular 124th Street area shops and restaurants with a mix of character homes that blends history with modern charm.

A big thank-you to plant lover and guest contributor this month Kimberly Wynn for partnering with us and sharing her top tips for creating an indoor house plant oasis.

"Kim, the leaves on my _________ are turning yellow - what do I do?"

"Kim, I have a black (or brown) thumb. Please help."
