Purple Mystery Flower

All of a sudden there's a huge patch of these flowers behind the retirement community on my walking route.  I did a search for "purple star-shaped flower" but couldn't identify it.  Of all the hundreds of blooms, I deemed this one the most perfect and worthy of photographing.

Send your email address through my blog, and I will get in touch with you re: the camera etc. I moderate messages so it won't post. Thanks, gin

Update (April 26th): This flower must be some horrible invasive weed because today when I walked past this spot all of these flowers were gone. Every single one! Yanked out by the roots. There are lots of low-lying pink flowers here too; the indended flower, I assume. However it's much less photogenic.
