Azaleas are in full bloom and will be gone by the end of this week or next, so I threw in this extra. Mobile was once known as the Azalea City. You could drive through Mobile following the "Azalea Trail" (a pink line painted down the city streets that took you through some of the prettiest azalea neighborhoods). We even have azalea trail maids who dress in period costumes in colors of the beautiful azaleas, with hoop skirts as wide as the Southern Indian Azaleas. Now the city is trying to sell itself as the "Port City." Personally, I prefer Azalea City, but no one asked me.
