Harking back

Lilies of summer

The last of the summer’s flowers are doing the fade as the leaves fall. Here’s a lovely memory of the lushness that’s gone. And, yes, the color hasn’t been boosted. [I have a version on my iPhone’s lock-screen.]

My dictionary says that hark comes from a hunting term referring to hounds retracing their steps to find a scent they’ve lost. Appropriate with a flower picture.
