The Surrealness of Duckweed


Duckweed is odd stuff. It comes in off the feet of ducks or other water loving birds and colonises still or slow moving water to form vast green carpets of vivid green more-or-less overnight.

To me it looks like a river of pea soup!

  6. Isn't it interesting that the birds bring this to the pond and it can choke the very thing they need to keep them alive. Weird twist on nature. You look fab in the red, love the turn up detail. Xxxx
