Our neighbor was going on vacation and had a bunch of roses at home, so she gave them to us. A few weeks later, we still had those but they look a lot less fresh than when we got them. They looked to me like of a bunch of soldiers who had died on the field during a fight. Hence the title.

Beautiful tonality! You probably got a few of these comments. (I voted early but had no time for comments)

The deep colors are gorgoeus, especially in the first rose.

Flowers might just be the only things that remain beautiful, even when they're dead.
