Frogbit



Frogbit is an invasive alien species. It clogs waterways and chokes out native species. But it's sort of pretty. The really tiny stuff is duckweed. It is the smallest flowering plant. This is at Detroit Metrobeach. Photo by Mary Stebbins Taitt. Click image to view larger.

the pretty white flowers belie the nastiness of the plant

So true, they look sort of like miniature water lilies, but they are not!

Love that you are really getting around town! I used to like Metro Beach, too. I worked in Greektown for awile, before the era of casinos. It used to be nice.
