When vivid splashes of violet start to appear in the rolling hills, you know you're approaching Pelindaba Lavender Farm. A tour of owner Steven Robins' shop is almost a three-credit course in lavender history and its culinary, medicinal, and household uses. You'll walk out nibbling lavender-infused chocolate (and probably toting some all-purpose cleaner, too). 45 Hawthorne Lane, Friday Harbor, WA, 360/378-4248; pelindabalavender.com.
