It looks like a Ceanothus - maybe someone else can narrow it down further. Here are some pics of different ones:

Looks like a California Lilac to me:

You're all brilliant thank you so much.

I'm conducting an investigation, hypothesis being: is there a difference in number of visit by bees in the am to pm.

I went into my garden and selecting the plant with the most interest bees and it was this. Then it was the dilemma of identifying what plant it actually is.
