The biggest surprise of our visit here was Karen Blixen's visual art. Who knew she was a fabulous artist? There are a number of pencil portraits in the house and lucky for me, a book on her art available in the gift shop. Our guide in the house was delightful and knowledgeable. The house itself is very interesting and there are many items of interest there. I was especially impressed by the flower arrangements in lovely containers everywhere. They included dandelion seed heads, rhubarb blossoms and many creative combinations. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys her writing, or anyone, really.
