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?
