Ladybird was the "Make America Beautiful".FLOTUS, right? We didn't have to wait decades but it was years without much of a desert wildflowers show. Last year was really nice but this year is spectacular. Especially considering the long wait. Spring has always been my favorite season here. A little early this year but no one is complaining.

You should post some pics! The only thing we love here more than nature photos and chill tunes is bacon
Yep, she was the FLOTUS who wanted to beautify the roads etc. Plant wild flowers, take down billboards, native plants, etc. Here is a quick shot of the bluebonnets in the lawn. There are better photos out there, especially in a landscape.

Why Scientists Are So Excited About This Solar Eclipse

On August 21, 2017, that shadow will sweep across North America as millions revel in a total solar eclipse. It's the first one to grace the continental United States since 1979 and the first to run from sea to shining sea since 1918.

Darkness settles in. The soft colors of morning quickly dampen and shadows sharpen. As you look up, the sun transforms into a black hole, winter constellations appear, and the seldom-seen corona — that ghostly halo of light that wraps around the sun's surface — becomes visible. The temperature plummets causing birds to grow quiet, farm animals to shuffle to their barns, and crickets to begin their nightly tune. You're now in the shadow of the moon.
"It is this incredible multi-sensory experience that absolutely no photograph can do justice," says Tyler Nordgren, an astronomer at the University of Redlands.

Great post...Thanks TL.. we are going to watch the Solar Eclipse at the best viewing place in USA, ...southern Illinois.. Maximum duration and Maximum coverage!

Illinois is the state that has the most area of the overlap of the paths of totality for the great eclipses of 2017 and 2024!

Illinois is also home to the point of greatest duration for this eclipse! According to the US Naval Observatory's eclipse page, there is a point in the Shawnee Nat'l. Forest (just south of Carbondale) that will see 2m44s of totality!
