Det er ikke helt sant at disse rosene er røde lenger nå, men da disse bildene ble tatt var de drøy tre uker gamle, og det vil jeg si er en bra levetid for avskårne roser. De begynner å bære preg av forfall her, men fortsatt var de vakre i flere dager.
It's not entirely true that these roses are still red. When these pictures were taken, however, they were a little more than three weeks old, and still beautifully crimson red - aging with grace. They begin to show signs of decay in these photos, but still they were good looking in a mature way for a few days more before they gave in.
