Collectible Appletree Hollow Series

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.

"Wee Willie Winkie on Xmas Eve"
oil on canvas - 6"x8"
animal art

My version of Wee Willie Winkie with his Teddy on Xmas eve.

Did you know the origin of the Wee Willie Winkie?
The explanation of the words to Wee Willie Winkie was to teach children to associate every day tasks with their own lives. Before the days of the wireless, television and the Internet great reliance was put upon the Town Crier to pass on the latest news and information. 'Wee Willie Winkie' was the children's version of the Town Crier! The author of the poem was William Miller (1810 - 1872) and the first publication date of the words to Wee Willie Winkie was in 1841.
