I took this while having a wander through Calderstones park, Liverpool, specifically looking for a nice crocus.
For me, the crocus does give me hope for the arrival of a beautiful spring. I didn't intend to enter a challenge, but it fits well for this challenge.

Editing... Just a few spot healing patches, a crop, and resize, you can't improve on Nature :-)

Very beautiful tone and colour. It shows the flowers blooming and there is so much hope. Very nice capture.

Wow! Beautiful. Flowers are a little cliche for a hope challenge... but considering my photo didn't even really fit the challenge i'm not one to talk lol. The focus is perfect. Fabulous job!
