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.
