Write a letter to your friend describing your favourite hobby

Dear Papai
It now springs here! And your letter brings me the fragrance of some unknown flowers in your garden. It moves me towards my garden, for as you know, gardening is my favourite hobby. In my garden too, flowers are blooming and green leaves are coming forth now.

A little space in front of our cottage is used for gardening. I dig the land, sow the seeds and water the plants there. It involves hard work but it is not tiresome, because I enjoy the work. It is a place where I can sit for hours watching the flowers and the branches nodding in the breeze. I have a feeling that the plants and their flowers are no mute insensate things. They have a language of their own which I understand. A part of my garden behind our cottage also serves as a kitchen garden.

My friends often ask me why I have chosen gardening as my hobby when there are so many fashionable hobbies like stamp-collecting, coin-collecting, photography etc. Frankly speaking, nobody knows why one has chosen one’s hobby. It must be my nature that draws me to gardening.

Would you please let me know your hobby?
With love and good wishes,
Yours truely
