Those sweet lavender flowers come in purple, violet, mauve, orchid, lilac, indigo, amethyst, plum, pink, and even white. You will find works of art and folks supporting the option to dress in tints and shades of purple as they enjoy a festive night on the town with friends and fellow Sequimmers preparing for Sequim Lavender Weekend later in the month.
