Pond life - flowers, some more welcome than others

Just when I thought that I had got rid of all the oak leaves that had blown into the pond during the winter, the trees have started to flower. Yes I know that they have to do that in order to have acorns, but I had no idea that they would be produced in such vast amounts nor that the spring storms would blow tons of them into the pond. Back to work with the fishing net.
But much happier is the first sign of pink buds bobbing above the lily leaves. Hurrah!
