On a walk this week, we passed the Muddy River and saw this contrast in colors.
The lawn in the small park at Charlesgate East is dry and brown, while the surface of the Muddy River running alongside is emerald green.
What the specific growth on the river's surface is, we don't know. But this page from the Charles River Watershed Association does give some alerts for some types of blooms. In the past, there have been potentially toxic blooms on the Muddy.
