on their way out

These flowers are more faded that they seem - yellowing around the gills.  I've tried to keep them going - cut them down from their long stems, changed their water - but I don't think they're going to survive for a few days of my absence, sitting in a warm room.  And I have no other home for them, and no compost.  Maybe they wouldn't even have made it through until tomorrow morning - but I'm sad to be saying farewell.  It makes the hugest difference, having fresh flowers (and flowering bulbs - hyacinths, tulips) in my little apartment ...
