Johnson Spring is a smaller spring in the Gilchrist Blue Springs area. Duckweed covers part of the surface, but the water is still a pretty bluish color and flows along for several hundred yards where it meets the Santa Fe River.
While the lighting was sub-optimal, I was entrance by all of the lilies in bloom.
I followed a forest trail that led back to Naked Springs, a flashier cousin.

Maple pods, a sure sign of the beginning of spring
These last two images were made at a place named Pearl Spring, where I had some sunshine on the flowers. And that will wrap it up for this week.
This post was scheduled for this day. NomadRuss is spending the season at Katmai National Park in Alaska. He won’t have solid internet connection again until late September, so responses to comments may be delayed. Please be patient and see you in the fall! Still, look for posts here every Thursday!
