The little flowers that just won't quit / De små blommorna som inte ger sig

You may remember these flowers; I bought them on May 4th at half half off because they were not in very good shape and photographed them the next day. Well, these are the very same flowers on a photo from last night - two weeks later! They look practically the same today, sitting on top of my piano in the warmest room in my flat. This is probably the right time to tell you that I'm actually 96 years old and have also been sitting on top of my piano. Okay, not really, but I think these little flowers are spectacular because they're hanging on for so long.

Ni kanske kommer ihåg de här blommorna som jag köpte den fjärde maj för halva halva priset eftersom de var halvdöda och jag fotograferade dem nästa dag? Det här är samma blommor fotograferade sent i går kväll - två veckor senare! De ser i stort sett likadana ut idag där de står på pianot i lägenhetens varmaste rum. Kanske är det rätt tidpunkt att avslöja att jag i själva verket är 96 - jag har bara stått på pianot väldigt länge. Eller nej, men jag tycker blommorna gör det bra som står så här i två veckor med tanke på att de var på väg att slängas.
