Garden Words


The garden at my grandparents house is absolutely beautiful. There are millions of brightly coloured _1_ which smell wonderful. My grandmother can still name them all, even though she is nearly 85 years old. There are also tall _2_ which you can sit under on a sunny day.

A winding _3_ that you can walk on goes all the way around the garden, even to the back where there is a small _4_. Inside, there are small sofas where my grandfather likes to sit on a break from gardening. It's also where he keeps all his _5_.

There is a _6_ for all their grandchildren to play on and a _7_ full of little fish. Sometimes the birds and the cat get a bit close, so there is a thin net over it to keep the fish safe! My favourite thing to do, is to sit on the _8_ with my baby girl and show her all the wonderful things. Then we walk around the garden and she has a lovely time touching and smelling the plants and looking for insects. I hope one day we have a house with our own garden. I will grow vegetables and fruits and we can have BBQ’s there on hot days.
