Everything flowers in the spring—where in Rockford is this?

1.

By BETH ALTENA

We took our dogs on a walk in one of our favorite parks. Perhaps one of these flower pictures will give away where in Rockford this is. Remember, we are defining Rockford as the Rockford School District, so this park might not be (isn’t) actually in Rockford. That is all the hint you get. There was such an abundance of spring flowers I couldn’t resist snapping these shots. Maybe a very knowledgeable reader can identify all these different species. By the way, I do know the berries are not a flower but they were so pretty and the other flower-like thing is probably some kind of seed pod. Please email us at squireproof@gmail.com and as always, send us your own mystery photos to share!
