A weed grows in Reading

Have you ever heard of aquatic weeds? I sure hadn't, but that's what came up when I Googled "underwater plants" in search of what that lush greenery undulating just below the surface in the canal might be.

I can't say for certain if these even *are* aquatic weeds, but they somehow sound so much more lovely and desirable than the garden variety (commonly found, appropriately enough, in your garden). I don't know if they'd tangle up a boat motor or a swimmer (more like a drowner, as I can't see anyone choosing to swim in the canal).

Whatever they are, they're gently beautiful, no?
