Whenever the Baroness' "friend" (probably with benefits) Denys Finch-Hatton finishes leading a safari he comes to chill on the farm, and all of her servants announce it and help her get ready.
Her friends love the farm, because it is a constant in their wandering lives.
An old lady in Denmark gives her some peony bulbs to plant, and only one grows. She cuts it and puts it in a vase, and later learns that if she had let it grow and taken the seeds then they could have started peonies in Africa. Oops.
Several friends come to hang out and the Baroness describes them all. In particular, her friend Ingrid, a Swede, who also has a farm and shares her struggles with Blixen.
Mr. Bulpett, Denys, and the Baroness go for a picnic on old Mr. Bulpett's 77th birthday, and discuss whether or not they would take a pair of real wings if they were offered them, but could never take them off. Mr. Bulpett says he would take them, but that if he were a lady he would have to think it over.
