"I always had a passion for gardening and planting flowers," she explains, "and I figured at this point in my life I might not get another opportunity." She studied for and received her landscape design certification with the intention of opening her own landscape design and gardening service, but she put those plans on hold when she learned the flower shop was up for sale.

It's been a flower shop for fifty years (its many owners include a member of the Metzger family) and does everything from selling flowers to providing floral arrangements for wed-dings and other special events.

Kassa is just happy to be in business for herself. "I had been wanting to do it for about the last five years I was at the Ann Arbor News. I just decided to take that leap." With the paper's imminent closing, she adds, "In hindsight, it was probably good timing."

University Flower Shop, 7 Nickels Arcade. 668-8096. Mon.-Fri. 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Sat. 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Closed Sun. www.universityflowershopannarbor.com.
