I Heart Faces-Fall Colors

_MG_1100-1 wm

This is a non competition week at I Heart Faces. They’re hosting a workshop this weekend and Amy and Angie are pretty darn busy right now. I can’t wait to see all of the fabulous photos that come out of the workshop; boy, do I wish I could go! Maybe next year….
Anyway, here’s what I Heart Faces is looking for this week:

This means no judged contest, but a week of fun and to share your story. We’d like for you to link up your favorite image of Fall and tell a short story to go along with your photo. Have a favorite fall memory? Where is the prettiest place you’ve been during the fall? How does your photo make you feel? Do you have fall traditions? Your photo does not have to include a face.

I took this pic this weekend. The berries are on a bush at my mom’s house outside of Nashville; I’ve clipped those berries most years at Thanksgiving to take home to decorate for Christmas. Right now, they’re pale yet still lovely; in another month, they’ll be deep red and ready to weave into wreaths and garland. I suppose I could make it easy on myself and just plant one of the bushes at my house in Georgia, but this one was planted by my dad before he died in 1995. I guess it makes me feel like I still have a little part of him with me during the holidays.

For more fall color and stories, head on over to I Heart Faces and visit all of my friends. Happy Fall, y’all….
