WE ARE HERE.......WHERE ARE YOU???.......

Actually, we are not in the middle of a field of wild flowers......nor are we here.....

floating in the middle of this beautiful lake.........we are here....

Hope, Idaho.....population 78......the views of  wildflowers and the lake are everywhere as you drive along the highway....incredible..
aren't they??

A little more local color........

Cute funky little cottages.....looking out on a potager garden...

Inside the main store, which is the first photo of this little community, there is a restaurant, gallery, lending library and a little local meeting area  situation (I think)...

gotta love that purple door.....

I would love to live in a community where I could paint my house ANY color I wanted.....
Perhaps next time  LOL

Hugs from this little artist community.



  1. Oh, I love that little community. Those little cottages are so bright and inviting. I love it.

  2. What charming, whimsical little cottages!

  3. how sweet is that?! I would love to live in a place called Hope...where abouts in Idaho is she?

  4. Hello Jo:
    This looks to be absolutely glorious. And to be in a spot with so few people - wonderful!!

  5. Population 78...

    I wonder if everyone in the town is from the same family?
    I kind of like the purple door, very unique and they have picked
    a wonderful name for their town.

    The one cottage looks like it is becoming a part of the forest.
    I like that too.

    Thanks for sharing this Jo.
    hugs Sharon
