Orange Oatmeal Scones with Almond Glaze ~ There was a coffee shop that I used to frequent often on my way into work when I lived in Chicago, many years ago.

February may be the shortest month of the year but it’s perhaps the most passionate and Mother Nature knows all too well just what to do by giving us a bounty of love-ly beets at the Farmers Markets.

Oh Texas, you are so fickle this year, with your freezes, the occasional pouring rain and sprinklings of 80 degree weather — what’s a farmer to do? Or what’s a gardener to do?
