O, solopreneurs, those glorious hummingbirds can take your business on a flight of fancy!
I do love all creatures great and small, except the deer when they eat my roses, and a few undesirable sorts of critters. But there is a very spacial place in my heart for hummingbirds.
These captivating little creatures come in so many colors, and artists of all ilk have drawn upon their wonder to create the most wonderful things.
Would you believe that the image here is of a shower curtain? Isn’t that incredible! I can just imagine the purples and blues that would be in the towels and rugs to accent this very special piece.
That is the kind of unique product that you can bring to your blog on hummingbirds.
Goodies for the Hummingbirds in Your Life
Hummingbirds don’t require a great deal. A feeder. Some food. Some flower so they can search for sweet nectar.
There are, however, probably a hundred different designs for hummingbird feeders, and you can feature each and every one on your hummingbird blog.
Here is one hummingbird feeder that pops onto the outside of your window, so you can spend hours watching their antics.
When I lived in southern California, I set up my balcony so that my chaise lounge looked at the hummingbird feeder, but didn’t interfere with it. My great hobby was capturing the most splendid images of these creatures, and watching how they interacted around the feeder. Did you know that when they nose-dive, it is at speeds of 100 mph or more, and this is part of their courtship. Fascinating.
