    You won't get far on the habitat forum without pics. WITH pics, however, you'll most certainly get an answer.

    Sorry notnarbt ... FloridaFowler is right on the button. There's virtually no way to help you ID the "plants" you've asked about without pics. He took the time and effort to offer that suggestion and got an undeserved rude response from you in return.

    Here's some help.

    The plant with the purple flower is creeping charlie.

    The bright green grass is crabgrass.

    Do I win the prize?
    "bright green grass" and "purple flowers" are pretty good descriptions so you shouldn't have an issue having someone figure out which of 10 billion varieties of green grass you have growing in your mud patch.

    The bright shiney Grass is most likely a Sedge.

    Toothcup has Purple flowers next to the main stem.

    Ducks up here like both. Mallards like sedge flooded in January. Pintails and teal LOVE toothcup.

    Seems to me that you have a good planting of purple flower and shiny green grass. Of course without a pic, that is about of good of a guess as I can come up with.....Good luck!!!
