Viburnum doublefile blooms in spring with a strong scent that I love
If asked what my favorite hobby is, I would answer that I am an avid gardener. To me, this pastime far surpasses any other pastime for many reasons. But for me a major factor is the way it appeals to my senses.
Let me list some ways that it holds my interest and passion. Using the five senses, the reasons are: Taste – from fresh vegetables and fruits. Smell – this goes without saying. Hearing – from the wind to the birds and the bees! Touch – even this is found in my garden, from wet mud to dry fallen leaves. Sight is also satisfied. What more lovely than a well-designed landscape or a colorful jumble of flowers? It’s clear that gardening is a well-rounded activity. Using my hands and thinking through projects and tasks gives me a sense of accomplishment in a creative way.
