CommentsDominated much of shoreline; emergent and submerged in water up to 2-3m. NOT blooming!; Overcast, cool. Logging around lake. Snails, algae, Canda geese. Looking for Butomus. Couldn't find flowers, but talked to a resident who says he's seen them before, but not this year. May be the sedge-looking thing that dominated parts of the lake. He also said water level is way up this year, so maybe it just never flowered?
