Not So Wordless Wednesday: Duranta in Bloom

One of our favorite small trees around our deck is this Duranta.  It attracts butterflies, humming birds and bees.  We both love its delicate purple outlined flowers that bloom for 9-10 month annually.  We have two hummingbirds that show up regularly to sip on the nectar the flowers exude. We enjoy sitting on our deck lounges watching them!

Happy Wednesday!

CAN YOU STATE HOW YOU ARE DIFFERENT AND BETTER THAN YOUR COMPETITION IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS?

 

ABOUT:  Luxury Real Estate is a high stakes game. Commissions are substantial! We help luxury real estate professionals get to the listing table more often and win listings more frequently.  If you want to be the market leader, the personal or company brand that your target market thinks of first and refers most often, you need an Elevator Statement to accelerate the process.  We can get you there!

Your Elevator Statement is a succinct and persuasive summary of your extraordinary promise of value, your unique selling proposition.  In a time-starved world the attention span of your target market is shrinking.  To instantly convey what sets you apart from the crowd you need to be able to answer EACH ONE of these 3 questions in less than 30 seconds.: 1) What Do You Do?; 2)  How Do You Do It?, and;  3) How Are You Different?.  Can you state how you are different and better than your competition in less than 30 seconds?

Watch the video above to see and hear how we do it.

Lottie Kendall Thank you for your comment.  We have to trim it often as it keeps growing and growing obscuring our hibiscus. We have concluded they are in competition...

I think that somewhere along the years we captured a photo of a Monarch butterfly sitting on one of the flowers of this tree.  What a lovely contrast they made!

Hi Ron and Alexandra- I'm not familiar with this flower but Larry and I are enjoying all of the hummingbirds we've seen in our back yard. We have two small feeders at the windows and a larger one in the yard and watch them while having our morning coffee outside.

Morning Alexandra.

Our hummingbirds are starting to leave for the year.   While it is still hot here the flowers are dying as cooler temps are starting to hit us next week

I love it when hummingbirds come by and in Jupiter at this time of the year there is an abundance of small yellow butterflies.
