Evidence of exuberant life!

Life is bursting out here in the valley.

I love these early signs of renewal and regeneration, especially those that appear ‘over the top’ (is that just an English phrase?)

Exuberance: the quality of being full of energy, excitement, and cheerfulness

Isn’t that wonderful?

These willow buds are just that, and somehow, we need a dose of exuberance at this moment in time.

They give us hope and help us not take ourselves too seriously.

After all, we are part of an extravagant creation.
