Last Saturday, we visited Glendarragh Lavender Farm in Appleton, Maine. They were almost ready to harvest the lavender and opened their farm to visitors. What a beautiful place!
I've always wanted to see fields of lavender but didn't know about Glendarragh until recently. They grow a dozen varieties of English and French (lavandin) lavender at their farm, in a range of colors from deep purple to pale pink, white, and of course, lavender. You can read more about them and see some harvest photos on their Facebook page.
Of course I had to come home and make some Lavender Lemonade lip balms. It's a specialty flavor, a purple-hued lemon-flavored balm with a hint of lavender.
