The Fond du Lac River has been very brown for several days. A couple of weeks ago it had blue-green algae mixed in with the water lilies close to shore. 

An interesting thing about the plants is that one will be very vigorous and right next to it will be the same type of plant that is not thriving. It is not because something is eating them although certain varieties are being eaten. See "Maintaining the Garden" section for photos.
