Flint florist celebrates centennial with free flowers on first day of spring - MLive.com
Avenue.John David began working at Vogt’s in the mid-1950s after following his college sweetheart to Flint. John David was studying horticulture at Michigan State University and it was required he find an internship, Krueger said.“So he took his internship at a flower shop close to where she was in Flushing,” Krueger said. “He never went back to school, like most people did and still do, and here we are today.”Gordon Anthony bought the shop from Vogt in the mid-1950s and John David operated the flower shop for him. It wouldn’t be long before John David saved enough money to buy the shop from Anthony in the late 1960s.Krueger remembers growing up around the flower shop as a kid. When his family’s company hosted parities and events, he would stay up until 1 or 2 a.m. helping to clean up.“I remember sleeping in the back of the vans because they couldn’t keep you at home,” Krueger said.Krueger credits his consistency and persistence to his family’s long-standing business.“Consistency is ... always (offering) a high quality product at a very reasonable, value-driven price,” Krueger said. “Persistence is you have to keep it going month after month, year after year. That’s the hard part. When it gets old and tiring you have to make sure you’re still passionate about what you’re doing.” It’s also key to keep up with industry trends, Krueger said.“You can’t be too comfortable with what you sell,” Krueger said. “Are you selling what your customers want or are you selling what you’re comfortable with? You have to change with that. Keep yourself educated within your industry by going to shows and markets.”If he had to choose, Krueger said his favorite flower would be roses because how beautifully they bloom.“I just think a rose is classic and there are certain roses when they open you just think that’s about as pretty as a flower can get,” Krueger said. “I’m not only proud of the flower shop, but I’m proud of how far the community has come in the last 15 to 20 years.”...

Flowers of Vietnam chef to anchor historic southwest Detroit building - Crain's Detroit Business
I'm going to be cooking Mexican food," he said. "Focusing on regional places in the country that I think are underrepresented in our community, in Michigan, that are really, really interesting."As an example he pointed to cuisine from Oaxaca, an area known for its food and history. He plans to seat 80 or fewer, serving alcohol including Mexican wines. The spaces is 3,200 square feet. Paul Saginaw, co-founder of Zingerman's Deli, is a partner. He'd be competing with nearby Mexican-Italian restaurant El Barzon, as well as others in Mexicantown. Azar hasn't named the restaurant yet or solidified a menu. It isn't expected to open until early 2020. But he has signed a lease and will work on design with the team renovating the Grosfield Building and others along Michigan Avenue. Azar said he expects it to cost $500,000-$750,000 to build out. Other retail tenants aren't yet picked out for another 5,100 square feet of first-floor space. The Grosfield Building is about 3/4 of a mile east of a redevelopment planned by Detroit restaurateur Dave Kwiatkowski that's expected to have a Korean bar and high-end sushi counter.
The renovation project encompasses three buildings at 3365 and 3363 Michigan Ave., just west of Corktown. The units were originally planned as for-sale, but now they'll be one-bedroom rentals in the range of $1,200-$1,550 per month. The project cost was previously estimated at $4 million, but build-out of the restaurant is included in the nearly $5 million total the developer is now using.Architect John Biggar and former Crain's Twenty in their 20s honoree Brian Mooney co-own the companies leading the project: Detroit-based developer Warehouse Development, construction manager Integrity Building Group and architectural firm StudiozONE. The team's list of projects includes the Grand Army of the Republic Building and restaurant Wright & Co., both in Detroit. Lending for the endeavor comes fr... Mar 15, 2019
Bacon roses? Plumeria Botanical Boutique has a meaty take on Valentine's Day - Battle Creek Enquirer
That's what we specialize in, custom work," she said.
Plumeria, at 1364 West Michigan Ave., is about three-and-a-half years old.
Hodge, who is from Battle Creek, used to work in banking in Flint, handling small-business lending. The switch to becoming a florist happened very rapidly. In just a few weeks, she sold her house, moved back and starting interning at Country Bouquet.
Four months later, she bought the business and reopened it as Plumeria.
The career change wasn't completely out of the blue. Hodge graduated from Central Michigan University with a degree in art, and her mother was a florist.
"It certainly helps as far as color combination and structure, but I did have to learn flowers," Hodge said. "There's a lot of mechanics you have to learn, how to put them in different containers, how to process them. I definitely had to learn, and I'm still learning."
Hodge has undertaken community projects, as well. Last year, Plumeria raised money and gathered volunteers to place roses on 7,500 graves at Fort Custer National Cemetery on Memorial Day.
This year, Hodge is hoping to raise enough to place roses on all the graves at Fort Custer, roughly 36,000 roses.
"As a small business, we try to give back to the community," Hodge said. "Any kind of community event we can help with and give is really important to us."

Rare Ohio plant found near Vermilion - Norwalk Reflector
There's no such thing as a dumb weed that I know of," Bissell said.
Carey's smartweed is found in other states, but is considered rare. In Michigan, for example, it is a threatened and legally protected species that has only been spotted in six counties and was last seen in 1999, according to Michigan State University's Michigan Natural Features Inventory.
Bissell said he likes to go to Lake Erie wetlands. He said he found half a dozen rare or threatened plants at Putnam Marsh, an Erie County wetlands that is part of Erie MetroParks.
And he suspects that Carey's smartweed is still in Erie County.
"I want to find it in your county," he said.
