Here’s another photo taken while we were at Elk Island park on Saturday. I don’t know what they are, but they looked quite nice popping up from the water amongst the duck-weed. The pink flowers were a strong contrast to the green and blue of the pond surface.
Update: ID’d as Water Smartweed (Polygonum amphibium), thanks Mom!

Did you ever figure out what this is? I’ve looked, but can’t find it. Such a beautiful color!
Found it…Water Smartweed. Take a look here…
Yeah that must be it, thanks for finding that!
