(can you find the budgies in this picture?)
The greenhouse was a bit run-down and underutilized even back then and was torn down this year to make way for a more elaborate conservatory. I regret that I didn't make it back in time to take more pictures before they tore it down. The place held some nice memories for me besides the wedding; I did my "job shadow" with one of the master gardeners at the greenhouse back in 8th grade, and when I was in high school the whole town flocked there to witness the blooming of the century plant. I'm happy to see Rockford get another nice botanical installation to go with the Klehm Arboretum and Anderson Gardens, but I will always feel affection for the scruffy old greenhouse by the river.
