Hilliard flower boxes blooming in Westlake

Kathy Hancy plants a variety of marigolds in a flower box commemorating the memory of Howard and Julia Miller. 

Dozens of residents made their way to Hilliard Boulevard on a slightly overcast Saturday morning on May 22 to add a splash of color to the more than 220 flower boxes that adorn the median of Westlake's main street.

This annual tradition has been carried on by several families who have tended to the same boxes for decades and may continue to do so for many years to come.

Each flower box is automatically entered in the annual Westlake in Bloom gardening and community beautification competition, which will be accepting entries through June 25.
