Pruning because it represents the future and because it helps nourish the lives of family members for those who are no longer there.
Pruning because it is a cut with the past and helps to start a new life that will coincide with spring.
I have already wrote more than once about pruning and explained what it means to live the life of a plant. I wrote what it means to pruning with a scissor and find what will be the next branch that will have the next buds.
You certainly don’t think, at that moment , about grapes but only about the desire that the buds will open where you thought they could.
It helps to stay out, it helps to think only of a goal since for now uncertainty reigns.
It is a ritual that is repeated every year, not only for us, for the vine and the olive tree but for all those who manage the future of a plant.
Maybe it’s not that easy to talk about the true meaning but we can summarize it in three words: Present, Past and Future.
