What species of tree has light purple flowers? There are lots on Del Mar Blvd. in Pasadena.

Also, the Vons on E. Colorado is reopening today, after being remodeled for a year. I think there's a ceremony around 3PM. I'm hoping it still has a big parking lot, which was the main draw for me.

The trees are probably Jacarandas.

Without seeing the trees myself I'd say this, too.

Does it look like this (click on thumbnail)? If so, it's a jacaranda tree.
