Lavender Blue Dilly Dilly

Mom and I spent Monday on San Juan Island, which is an hour ferry ride northwest of Anacortes.  One of my favorite places on the island is the lavender farm.  It smells amazing, and where else can you be driving through the countryside and randomly stumble upon expansive fields of purple?
