Leaping into Autumn

As the leaves change and the distinct crisp air of autumn descends over Michigan, we bid farewell to summer and hello to fall with gorgeous gourds, colorful dahlias, and the warm colors of changing leaves. This week fleurdetroit welcomed the new season with our Fall Floral Workshop. The fleurdetroit floral studio is the perfect place to settle in for a workshop on a chilly October night! This month’s project focused on creating a stunning floral centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table…

Garden Roses and Leaking Roofs

The continued battle with our leaking roof in the floral studio has nearly driven us all to a point of not so pretty behaviors. The roof situation has been an ongoing issue this summer but, we were assured all of the leaks have been found and fixed. Needless to say the day we brought these beauties in also ushered in the day of the great ceiling collapse. Chicken Little herself would have certainly been flapping if the roses did not…

Swallow tails, A Great Friend, Lobelias and a Garden Walk

My friend, Diane, whose passion for the wild, Michigan garden burns as bright as her late summer lobelias bloom. I have posted many pictures of her garden on the Fleurdetroit Facebook page over the past seasons. I’ve tried to capture her zeal in each shot. Each patch , of her large peace of the county, carefully planted with natives to feed and shelter those creatures so many do not even see in their busy lives. Her meadow and bog gardens…

A Mid Summer Reflection

The seasons, no matter how late or off in temperature timing, continue to keep spinning forward. Joe and I have been so unaware of how much time has been put behind us as we march forward with the businesses and with friends. We are continuously investing all of ourselves and our time into making our contribution to the community matter. Most of our clients have traveled along side of us from the beginning supporting every step. We are also amazed…

Our Jewel Box In The Woods

Rather funny that I now think I need to give myself permission to take 15 minutes to walk my own gardens before rushing off to work.  I need to adjust my thought process quite quickly to regain some balance in my life.  Funny ha ha or not- I walked this morning!  My walk turned into quite a walk about… I was god smacked by all of the beauty and treasure that exists on our little piece of  this planet.   As if Persephone herself…

We also love when people reach out, congratulate and ask how was that done! Greetings! Thank you for taking interest in our table- The jumping off point was certainly a desire…
