40 gestures, 40 days, 40 years

Considering again the power of words to contain multiple meanings. Roots twisting into each other, bound as a result of growing beyond capacity and remaining in the confinement. My solution is tough love: shears cut through the roots to spread them apart, a new location is found, fresh soil or compost added. Best done when the plant is dormant, but before hard frost, so new growth comes in the spring.
