  1. Sample Answer

Well, I’m going to talk about the beautiful garden that I had a chance to visit about 2 years ago. It belongs to my maternal uncle and was adjacent to a narrow lake. My uncle lives 300 kilometres away from our house so that was the first time I’ve been there and it was absolutely amazing.

First thing to impress me was the picturesque beauty of this garden. I became speechless when I entered into it. It was so big that made me wonder how my uncle can ever afford this much of land. There were many types of trees in this garden including flowers trees, vegetable & fruit trees and big trees to give shadows to other one. What I love most was a small wooden bridge cross the lake connecting the other side of garden to the flower area. I have never seen so many flowers together like that before. Still remember the feeling when there was a soft, balmy wind blowing and the flowers were like dancing with the wind. Amazing. There were also fences all around the garden to protect it from savage animals.

This was not a public garden so the entry was restricted for the people to enter inside the garden but when I was there, some people asked to come inside to take pictures of this magnificent scenes and my uncle was very easy-going. He friendly invited them inside. I was joking to him that he should really turn this into a great earning source, you know, by selling the ticket.

I really like my uncle’s garden because it is such fabulous creations of him. The natural beauty of the garden is breathtaking and it’s amazing to see something that I’ve never seen before due the city block with all the buildings and industrial taste. This really touched my heart. Bad luck right after that day. I had to go to Australia for studying but I definitely will come see it again as soon as I come back”
