Beautiful day in Camden, Maine today. I made some special lavender and rose glazed shortbread this morning. All those booked in for the Holiday weekend will be able to sample some for afternoon tea today! The culinary lavender comes from the fabulous Glendarragh lavender farm, in Appleton, Maine. Fancy a cuppa?
This is what we’ve been waiting for! The Glendarragh farm lavender store has just opened at 22 main street, Camden. The store looks, and smells wonderful. They have natural and organic body lotions, as well as aromatherapy, bath, culinary, decorative, garden and herbal lavender goodies. Glendarragh Farm, home of Maine’s first commercial lavender farm, grows more than a dozen varieties of lavender in sweetly fragrant, hand-tended, organically fertilized fields.
