{Our Brown Jordan Chaise & Wolford Bathing Suit Score}

Don't know about you, but things in life seldom go as planned... at least not for both of us.
After Pieter finished last year with the tiles on our balcony, we did order a Brown Jordan Chaise after we fell in love with it at the +HYATT house Atlanta/Cobb Galleria during our stay of July 17.
First we had to search the internet and than order ONE.
The question over and over was; how many do you need for your resort?! 
It took all summer though... On September 24, finally we drove to Atlanta to the warehouse where it had been delivered. I came back with this very chaise on TOP of my cute ute; the now 17-year old Ravy, my Toyota RAV4!
BUT no more summer use for 2013, only this year after a LONG wait because of a wet spring and big part of the summer, I got to use our new Brown Jordan Chaise!
This is it; different color frame however.
Ours is: Brown Jordan Patio Stacking Adjustable Flight Chaise 3940-7000 in White Lite color 055 with Versatex Mesh in Latte 1079
Yep, that's me wearing my Outlet Score from May 3, when we went to The Colonnade Outlets at +Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise, Florida...
Just keep in mind that I am 3 x the age of your average model of 21 years young!
The sun is way too harsh to even look...
My natural gray hair; never ever used any dye...
THIS is a professional model and a lot younger!
But this triple-age girl was mighty proud for having snatched up a Wolford Forming Swimbody in Black, size Small, in cup B, with a whopping 75% Rebate!
Now that's what I call Outlet Scores; high quality for a steal.
Yep, my Egyptian feet...
Now each of us has a chaise on the balcony...
Love this new Brown Joardan Chaise & my Wolford Bathing Suit!
I had to laugh because: Wolford will discontinue its swimwear in spring 2015 (just click it)
Even though, I never will be making over-time on the balcony like this...

{Our Bonfire Prunus Persica - Patio Peach Foliage & Fruit}

Our Bonfire Prunus Persica or Patio Peach is supposed to have spectacular Fall Foliage & Fruit!
Well, it is not yet Fall here in the South East but yes, we were very surprised to see some PEACHES!
What do you think of that?!
All that, just from a Patio Peach as one of our pot plants...
This is the fall foliage what we are supposed to see later in the season.
Quite a surprising little Peach Tree!
Yep, we do honor our state of Georgia as it is called the PEACH STATE!
Picture taken, 5 days before we flew to Phoenix, Arizona for our 7-day vacation...
However small, those are real peaches.
When we got back from our vacation in Arizona, the peaches were gone...
Not all peaches made it as we did not use any pesticide... That's what you get if you only grow ORGANIC - whatever that really means!
For the time being, we enjoy it as a cute little tree that is full of surprises.
And again we look forward to its spectacular spring blossoms like you could see in a previous post via link below...
