Love in a Mist
Nigella damascena Several years ago we came across these on a trip to Maine. We liked them so much that after we came home we ordered seeds and planted them. They have continued to reseed and volunteer every year, although this year there are just a few plants. They are quite a stunning flower with white, pink, purple, and blue blossoms, some solid and some with white centers.

Waterfall at Dixon Springs
Usually just a trickle except after a heavy rain. One of the great local places to play, explore, hike, and birdwatch.

Classic Car
I failed to note the exact make and model of this beauty, but based on the design of the tail light I believe it's a late 1930s Chevrolet. EDIT: No, it's a Ford. Thanks +Frederick Kassebaum​! The engine appears to be a V8 with 4 bbl corroborator, but that's about all I can deduce from the picture. Taken at the recent 12 Oaks Car Show in Paducah, KY. This one has some tweaks done using +ON1​ Photo 10.5, which I again have working thanks to their great customer service.

+Frederick Kassebaum​ Thanks, you are correct. Well, no wonder I couldn't find an exact match. 😛

Spiderwort
Years ago we discovered this spiderwort plant growing in an old fencerow. Over time it has gotten more and more shady there, and the deer seem to enjoy grazing on it. So, to ensure its survival my wife transplanted part of to to a spot behind the greenhouse. It's doing quite well there, as evidenced by this snapshot that I took yesterday. I love the complex, fuzzy center of the blossom.
This is the Ohio variety of spiderwort, by the way. You can read all about Tradescantia ohiensis here: http://www.illinoiswildflowers.info/prairie/plantx/oh_spiderwortx.htm

Chrysanthemum
Here's something to brighten your morning. We have several of these chrysanthemums growing in our gardens. Each flower sits on a single stalk that is two to three feet tall. I thought I'd post this one today because it's #FloralFriday! The +FloralFriday theme was created by +Tamara Pruessner and is co-curated by +Beth Akerman, +Kiki Nelson, and +Eustace James.

I think just for fun I will post this one for #shroomshotsaturday +ShroomshotSaturday curated by +Sabeena LoBello and +Patricia A. This is Fred, a devoted morel mushroom hunter. He spoke recently with our Kiwanis club about his passion for morels and some of his mushroom hunting adventures. The device hanging on the lanyard around his neck is a morel mushroom call. :-)

Windows 10 "Forced" Upgrade
I'm quite satisfied with Windows 10 on my main desktop computer, but I have a Home Theater PC setup that I can not allow to upgrade, because I need Media Center to record OTA TV using a Hauppauge tuner card. If for any reason you want or need to keep Windows 7, you should read this article.
Microsoft's attempts to get everyone on Windows 10 intensifies as it begins to auto-schedule PCs to upgrade to the new OS.

+Frederick Kassebaum I love his comment about most of the size of the software is the color icon. Just downloaded and ran never10.exe. Logged off and back on and the upgrade icon is gone from the system tray. Yea!
Need to do the same on my laptop, which I am keeping on Windows 7 as an emergency backup Media Center PC. By the way, I recently installed Ubuntu 16.04 on that laptop so I need to do some experimenting with MythTV again.

1937 Dodge
How about a nice, big Dodge for your Saturday drive? Running boards and everything. That's a 1963 split-window Corvette next to it. Taken at the 12 Oaks Car Show in Paducah, KY, last weekend. Enhanced with some pseudo-HDR processing in +Nik Collection by Google.

Barn Near Rock
I've photographed this barn several times, most recently during the Audubon Spring Bird Count. It's located near Rock, IL, where some of my ancestors lived 150 years ago. I always enjoy driving through the area and imagining what it must have been like to live and farm back then. I'm posting it today for #FarmFriday +Farm Friday curated by +Ellie Kennard , +Steven Kennard and +Susanne Stelle.

Studebaker Commander
Fancy paint job and lots of engine chrome; three-shot hand-held HDR. One thing about car shows, you can almost never get a clean shot of a car without something in the background (a Mustang convertible in this case).
12 Oaks Car Show, Paducah, KY.
