100 WCGU - Week #174 Photo prompt leaves

Julie's 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups - Week #174 has a photo prompt this week of a bush with beautiful leaves.  With this prompt in mind, I have written a 100 word story which I am linking up to her blog hop.

She held onto her sister's hand as they carefully climbed the steep hillside.  It had been their tradition for many years to do that each fall when their Mother's smoke bush leaves started to turn brilliant colors.  Her old knees didn't make the journey as easily as once had been the case, especially when they were both younger, and before that dreadful day.  Leaving had been painful and their tradition had ceased.   Oh why did I agree to come back, she thought.  In a moment of weakness and partly out of curiosity she'd given into her sister's invitation to come.
