The flowers look like a tree wisteria, but I really are not a plant expert!!

Will have a look tonight in my tree books.

Where did you take the photos of this tree?? That might help to identify it.

It is the caterpillar bush or Ormocapum trichocarpum

Thought I knew and checked with the expert across the desk from me!
