spring details

We always say, “It’s the little things that count.”

Indeed.

As we huddle here in the final stretch of winter, I find myself dreaming of details,

the little things that make spring so special.

So, as thoughts will do, mine hopped around until they landed on this idea:

A “can-you-guess” sort of quiz that gives you a close-up glimpse of the coming season’s lovely little things.

Scroll through the images and their multiple-choice identities, below, and give ‘em a guess. Some are more obvious than others, but all are dream-worthy. The answers are at the end.
