Water Hyacinth

This is a water Hyacinth.  It's an invasive species introduced to Florida a long time ago and has become a major problem, choking waterways and taking over lots of fresh water habitat.  But damn, those flowers are pretty (click to embiggen).  This was taken in my back yard a few years ago and the nasty invaders are now gone.  The back yard pond is now home to a water lilly and lots of frogs.  You'll have to wait for pics of those.
