Nikolai Astrup - Norwegian Painter. As one flips through the news, something catches the eye. Well it was the yellow marsh marigolds that lined the brooks and water of this painting bringing back a rush of memories, and a blog I wrote in 2007 about 'nails of gold'. I often look out for marsh marigolds along rivers but sadly they disappear as we apply more fertilisers and pesticides to our fields.

Yesterday we went out for drinks and nibbles with a lot of other people in the village to a rather beautifully decorated house. Everyone talked, and I shall not give my opinion of people's characters on my blog, though I would dearly love to! Two elegant black long haired retrievers, so gentle and dignified, plodded round the guests and the table was laid out in 'feast proportions' though sometimes you get tired of all these little balls with unidentifiable food inside..
