The Pride of Mobile
It's azalea season here in Mobile, also known as the Azalea City. There is even an azalea named for Mobile.....The Pride of Mobile. The blossoms are almost the color of watermelon. This picture doesn't really portray how lovely the flowers really are.
The azaleas are just now beginning to bud, probably due to the severe cold weather in January. Sometimes if we have a mild winter, they will start blooming, and another hard freeze will come along and destroy the blossoms.
I'm really hoping for a beautiful azalea season this year.
