Collectible Appletree Hollow Series
I began the fantasy series of paintings titled: “Appletree Hollow Diaries” several years ago. Some of their personal story is based (loosely) on actual historical facts. You can read about the Discovery of Appletree Hollow in 2007 in my latest Journal entry

This is Flora Millicent Shepard, born and raised in Appletree Hollow ~ From the time she was very young she loved flowers and seemed to possess the ultimate “green thumb”. She would sneak into Albert Findhome’s garden and prune his shrubbery into animal shapes.
It wasn’t until she received first prize at the yearly village festival with an extraordinarily large stemmed pink rose, that she was given the title of : “ROSEY FLORA” and became the local floral expert. At the young age of 21 she established the first scientific lab in floral gene splicing that created some of the most amazing species of roses that we have today.
