A Seaweed Sunday
Very warm temperatures?
Too little rain?
Muskrats nibbling the weeds so more float to the top?
Or maybe it is some kind of cycle - when my husband and I first drove back and saw the little lake - which was very near the little house we were about to buy - we thought eeww - no one could possibly swim in THAT! The little body of water was choked with large mats of weeds. But we quickly found out that the lake is generally very clear and great to swim in.
We use the lake a lot and don't mind giving it a little extra TLC this year. You wouldn't believe the amount of weeds being taken out of that lake right now - and not just by us - other neighbors are taking turns on weed patrol as well.
