Pink Trees

My daughter plays AAU Basketball and we went to Aneheim for a tournament over the Halloween weekend.
It was huge! I have never seen so many games going on at once. It was the largest 2 day girls basketball tournament in the nation.
What am I greeted with when we go the parking lot of the Aneheim Sports Center???
This pink haven.
How funny that it was a girls tournament :)

Uh...Hi sensory overload. My eyes were basking in pink goodiness.....

Does anyone know what kind of tree this is?

I was already staging engagement pictures in my mind and fantasizing about how we could drive by here again and take quick pictures with my husband.
I'm a huge fan of the cherry blossoms, I just ADORE San Francisco when its time for the Cherry blossoms to well, blossom. So as you can imagine, I was like a kid in a candy store.
My daughter started gently pulling me away claiming she wanted to go warm up or something....

They're silk floss trees. They produce huge pods which open to release large amounts of what looks like cotton. People apparently even use it to stuff things like pillows. But they are definitely very pretty!

Thank you so much! I wondered what they were and was driving everyone nuts asking "You know, the pink trees?" lol! :P
