WHERE IN TEXAS?
A field of bluebonnets provided some seasonal color in our April photo. The bluebonnets and the distinctive lighthouse in the background reside at Lake Buchanan, the largest lake in Central Texas in surface area. Buchanan is named after U.S. Rep. James Buchanan of Central Texas (not after our 15th U.S. president). Reader Louise Castelli recognized the spot: "We saw your photo in the magazine, and on our trip to the Hill Country we actually saw the lighthouse. Our drive from Georgetown to Llano and Marble Falls was a delight with all the wildflowers in bloom." Learn about common wildflowers, wildflower drives and more at wildflower.org/texas.
