We have water lilies growing on almost every water surface, from the tiniest canals to the widest ponds, and along the edges of all the river. Some summers, they nearly choke the rivers.
The ducks, herons, geese, and swans don’t mind because they eat them, but when water levels are low, the fish and turtles have trouble swimming through the roots.
Not a problem this year. We’ve had so much rain that there’s plenty for room for anything that loves the water!
