Today my sister-in-law Sheila and I ventured into Appleton to see the lavender farm that supplies the lovely Lavender Store in downtown Camden. I’ve wanted to go for years! Sheila is a trained chef and gifted gardener of everything exquisite, from pink heirloom roses to red bee balm. We then drove to a couple of other farms--beautiful High Croft Farm with newborn lambs and goat milk soap that smells heavenly, and Deer Foot Farm, with a nice cafe. We loved the fresh lemon cream cheese, crisp, thinly sliced cukes and capers on the one bagel we shared w Duck Trap lox. Yum.
Here is Glendarragh Lavender Farm; check mainelavender.com. I have other great photos, including one of Sheila in her straw sun hat w pale pink scarf around rim, but taking forever to download and must rise early. We drive home tomorrow. Sweet, swaying lavender dreams.
