Swirls of olive, jade and green apple flourish among the gently rolling hills of kudzu and shrubbery, bordered by skyscrapers of wooded terrain. Delicate bursts of lavender, peach and magenta botanicals highlight the abundance of leafy greens to create a collage of splendorous nature.
Embraced by the warmth of the Deep South – Dallas, GA to be exact – this little piece of paradise is home to an array of wildlife; mostly birds and squirrels that have nestled into the birdhouses and birdbaths that adorn this cozy backyard. Following suit of invitation, the garden welcomes small creatures and critters alike with a collection of bird feeders, birdbaths and squirrel feeders.
This nature wonderland is additionally home to property owner Beth Wheeler, an avid birdwatcher and all-around animal lover. For the past 20-plus years she has enjoyed the relaxation birding allows; whether perched in her backyard or gazing through the kitchen window, her passion for observing the essence of nature provides an escape from the every day hustle and bustle, Wheeler explained.
“My heated birdbaths attract all types of birds – Robins, Woodpeckers and Blue Birds – that stay through the wintertime,” she said.
Fittingly, Wheeler developed an online business, www.TheBirdhouseChick.com, about two years ago when she was struggling to find quality birding décor for her backyard. With a bit of product research she established an “artisan’s unique birdhouse boutique,” which provides creatively crafted birdhouses, bird baths, bird feeders, squirrel feeders, bat houses, butterfly bath/feeders and butterfly houses.
“I wanted my products to be different, yet functional; we don’t offer the same boring wooden feeders. Shoppers can choose from imaginative creations like a cupcake-shaped bird feeder or a cat-shaped birdhouse,” Wheeler said.
Shortly after the launch of her Web site, Wheeler partnered with iePlexus in an effort to draw more online traffic to her business with the development of an interactive blog. At www.UniqueBirdhouseBoutique.com shoppers will find captivating and informative posts about the full line of products available at TheBirdhouseChick.com.
“Since teaming with iePlexus I’ve experienced increased page rankings on Google for both my Web site and blog,” Wheeler said.
Customer service at iePlexus is a pleasure, she continued, which is something I guarantee with my business as well. Each shopping experience is personalized with a handwritten note that’s shipped out with the merchandise; I don’t think I’ve ever had a return, she said.
