Breakfast With Stella

Today we are having breakfast with Stella. She is just beautiful, you will love her, she's radiant, full of color, and just define to look at.

Here's a peek at Stella.

Ok, now you know. Stella is Stella Dora Lilly and she's blooming in my yard and I just wanted to share her beauty with you.

Her blooms are so lovely but did you know that each bloom only lives one day, but the Stella de Oro daylily (her technical name) will re-bloom. I did a little research and read that if the spent flowers are deadheaded, stem and all, she will re-bloom profusely. 

Since Stella doesn't have much time to stay and visit, our breakfast is going to be pretty light and quick. We are have hot biscuits, strawberry jam, and fresh oranges and strawberries with a glass of squeezed OJ to drink.

Thanks for joining me for Breakfast With Stella and for playing along with my bit of humor - Judy.
