Caption: Lavender leaf surface. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a lavender (Lavandula sp.) leaf, showing the hair-like structures (trichomes, spikes) and oil glands (purple) that cover its surface. When the leaf is touched or damaged, the glands rupture and release the oil that gives lavender its distinctive fragrance.
