Dried Roses :: Roses séchées

Be like the bird that,
passing on her flight awhile on boughs too slight,
feels them give way beneath her,
and yet sings,
knowing that she hath wings.

— Victor Hugo

These are the remnants of Valentine’s Day, my dried up peach roses. I find them as beautiful as the fresh ones, even though they have dropped, are crinkly and shrivelled -) I just wanted to mention that the fountain pen that I used for this drawing is quite special. It is extremely fine and is about 25$, which is a very good deal. I bought it on Amazon and I am extremely happy with it. I also bought a converter to put the ink in it and I think that I paid about 8$.

Voici les roses de la St-Valentin de couleur pêche qui sont toutes séchées, défraîchies, tombantes et recroquevillées sur elles-même, et elles sont toujours aussi belles. Je voulais mentionner que j’utilise souvent cette plume fontaine que j’aime beaucoup car le bout est très fin. Je l’ai acheté sur Amazon avec le convertisseur pour l’encre et je suis très contente de sa qualité.
