A Visit To A Garden
Essay No. 01
A visit to a garden or a park is quite refreshing and educative. With the increase of population in towns and cities, open spaces are becoming very rare. Gardens, grounds and lawns are the lungs of a modern city. I like going to the garden and spending some time in the beautiful company of nature. A garden is place of beauty. It presents a feast of joy before us. There is a beautiful garden just in front of my house. Its shady trees seem to invite me during the summers and its green sunny lawns catch my eyes in the winter season. There are row of roses that attract the eyes of the beholder. I enjoy a stroll in the garden both in the morning and in the evening. At that time I forget all the worries of life. In the middle of the garden, there is a fountain and a small tank. The tank teems with colored fish of various kinds. Children flock to the tank and play with the fish. The garden also serves as a nest of singing birds. Many beautiful birds perch in the trees in the evening and pour out their melodious songs. In the morning the fragrance of the flowers lends a sweet charm to the whole atmosphere. On a moonlit night, the garden presents a beautiful scene. Many people visit the garden at different hours of the day. We have really a good time in the garden which is veritably a paradise on the earth.

A Municipal Park
There is a municipal park in our town. It is situated a few kilometres away from my house.”I visit it on Sundays and holidays.
The particular park which I have mentioned here, is quite a big one. It is situated near the bus stand. That is perhaps not quite proper as one cannot sit and have rest there in perfectly calm atmosphere.
Still, the park is of great value. It is rightly said that the parks and gardens are the lungs of towns and cities. If parks were not there, the urban areas would be no better than hell. In the urban areas the atmosphere is highly polluted and it is hard to breathe there. It is only the parks and gardens and other open spaces that provide some relief to the tired nerves and smoke-filled lungs of people.
The park has a number of grassy plots and flower beds. It has a circular passage for those who want to walk or have a race. There is a
tall fountain in the middle of the park. It keeps playing all the while except from midnight to dawn. There are a number of benches in the park. Mostly old people and children visit the park. During the examination days some students may be seen sitting on benches and cramming their lessons. Two gardeners are there to take care of the park. People are not allowed to bring eatables in the park. In one corner of the park there are some devices such as roundabouts, etc. for children. In the evening, some housewives may also be seen having a walk on the circular path. I mostly have a light exercise in the park early in the morning. I only wish that there should be more parks in all towns and more attention should be paid to them by all concerned.

Plants are important because they produce oxygen. They are important because some animals eat them. Some plants are used in salads.
Some plants, like flowers, smell good. Bees suck up the nectar from flowers to make honey. Flowers are also used as decorations in houses.
Trees are also used to make houses, swings, paper, boxes, bags, etc.. Trees also give us air to breathe. Children love to make tree houses in trees. You also use trees in your fireplace. Trees are fun to climb.
Grass is fun to roll around in, especially where there is a hill. Tall grass is very fun to play and hide in. It is also fun to help the grass grow. It is fun to turn on the sprinkler and run through it while it waters the grass.
Leaves are on trees. At times the leaves fall from the trees, especially in Autumn they fall. Then it's fun to rake them into a pile to jump into.
A bush is a small tree. A bush is fun to hide in. A bush can be a wind breaker. A bush also gives us the air we breathe.
No matter what kind of plant it is...a tree, a flower, a blade of grass, a leaf, or just a bush...
They need our help to live and grow.
