Home of the Model T

Here at his Highland Park Plant, Henry Ford in 1913 began the mass production of automobiles on a moving assembly line. By 1915 Ford built a million Model T's. In 1925 over 9,0000 were assembled in a single day. Mass production soon moved from here to all phases of American industry and set the pattern of abundance for the 20th Century living.

I thought this was a good reminder of our heritage - during the international automotive show in Detroit.

The Majestic Tree - MyWorld

Standing watch over the lonely winter field, longing for the warm sun to melt the snow and the new growth to appear. Soon and very soon said the wind.

Road Work - MyWorld

We discovered this young shy amish boy driving his team down the road with this road scraper. Even though it was very cold, he seemed to be enjoying his work.

Poinsettia - MyWorld

Popular flowering plant (Euphorbia pulcherrima) native to Mexico and Central America, it grows in moist, wet, wooded ravines and on rocky hillsides. What appear to be flower petals are actually coloured leaflike bracts that surround a central cluster of tiny yellow flowers.

I really like these colorful plants. They are so beautiful. They don't thrive in our cold winters, and we can't plant them outdoors - which makes them special for the short period of time that we can admire them. For more MyWorld photos click here.
