is it duckweed which has infested many lakes and ponds and takes away the oxygen from the fish?--Well, we call it that where I come from--it's originally from Japan and is a terrible nuisance

just for kicks I looked up "duckweed" and found that it's the smallest flowering plant (didn't know that) so--even if I'm wrong I at least learned something about this pest that has taken over Texas's ponds and lakes---doesn't make me like it any more, however :)

Dear Barbara L.

I'm sorry it's taken a while to post a picture like what's been suggested but my husband and I both have tried to no avail. We've taken a picture of what we want to post but can't seem to get DC to accept it. Please,--I don't want to keep anybody waiting any longer on this thread so please go ahead and post another picture for every one to guess at and in the meantime if you can refer me by pm how to go about it or if anyone else can I'd appreciate it for the next time that I guess right :) I'm so sorry to have made everyone wait.

Don't worry, expat. I'm willing to wait. Surely there's someone who can help you with your photo posting dilemma.

Hey expat.

Clear some space in your mailbox so I can PM you picture posting hints.

Ok, Buck, I think that I've deleted what I'm supposed to (not too computer savvy but my husband is at work now). You and Barbara L. are so wonderful to try and help me, I really appreciate it. Hope that you can now pm me. I'm really sorry to hold up this thread. Let me know if there are still problems. You guys are great!
