Bloom where you're planted

Oxford resident Frances Hilliard is all smiles as she works among her flowers in her yard on William Street. Hilliard, 76, said yard work is a form of therapy for her as she takes care of her husband Ralph, an Alzheimer's patient, full time and when he's napping she can slip out into the yard to work. The Hilliards are the parents of seven children, 19 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. - Staff photo by Sue Ann Kuhn-Smith
