Thank you so much Kirsty. A beautifully told story, evoking such vividly descriptive landscapes of places I recognise from growing up in the south west of Scotland. I couldn’t put it down. I could almost feel the damp smirr and smell the darkness of nighttime. @kirsty_wark_ #thehouseontheloch

I just finished reading this wonderful book, and appropriately enough today is #worldelephantday #highlyrecommended #theelephantwhisperer #lawrenceanthony
New @chanelofficial campaign @kris_grikaite with 60s/70s inspired middle parted “curtain” hair in the mood of Sharon Tate, Julie Christie and those post-mod icons.

#goodmorning First of the dahlias. I went around pinching out the first shoots yesterday, hoping for bushier plants with more flowers. A bit brutal, it will delay flowering, I hope it works. #dahlia #flowers #garden #samsgarden

And while we’re on the subject, I’ll be talking to Jo Thompson @jothompsongarden and Caroline Donald author of The Generous Gardener and Gardening Editor of the Sunday Times @pacets at the #GardenMuseumLiteraryFestival next Saturday @houghton_hall in Northamptonshire If you fancy listening to us waffle on for an hour or so, get more info and tickets @gardenmuseum It’s big two day festival with MUCH more stuff to do and see!
Shame on the BBC for announcing the insulting news that the very people who fought in, survived or were born after the last war, who were honoured and remembered only last week, are now being punished by losing their free TV licenses. Surely there is a fairer way? #bbc
Last of the peonies #garden #flowers #peony #bowlofbeauty
Two weeks until the longest day. Can we start summer now please?

#Fbf While I’m in a chicken mood, Flashback to a favourite shoot. Debo, Duchess of Devonshire, the last of the Mitford sisters, dressed in one of her original couture gowns, feeding her chicks. And she knew every one by name. Photo for @vogueitalia by @bruce_weber styled by #joemckenna m/up by @mirandajoyce production by Chris and Terry Lawrence #hairbysammcknight @hairbysammcknight
#goodmorning First pick of the season. #rose #garden @david_austin_roses
Thank you so much for all my lovely birthday messages yesterday. I love social media, for being in touch with so many friends, old and new, I love seeing your pics, families, funnies, vintage pics. I love all the old photos you’ve sent me yesterday, this one from mid 80s with @jostrettell probably shot by you @pamela_hanson ? Anyhoo, my main reason for being here is because it’s just amazing to keep in touch, because this was not possible before the advent of social media. So here we are, embracing it , and forever grateful for all your birthday love. Gush over! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ btw I still have that @RalphLauren suede jacket!
Thank you @britishvogue for our nomination in your beauty awards. These are awards which are decided by you, the public, so I’d be delighted if you could vote for us over @britishvogue where there will be a link in the bio. Thanking you all in advance!! ❤️ #hairbysammcknight @hairbysammcknight
RIP Doris Day The face and voice of a lifetime The Deadwood Stage is a well remembered song of my childhood, and a beautiful voice I grew up with, which still gives me great pleasure. ❤️
