A hobby is something that we do for pleasure in our free time. It is different from a profession. While profession is followed to make money, a hobby is an activity for leisure and earns us satisfaction. Different people have different hobbies.
They includes activities like reading, writing , singing, dancing, gardening, cooking, stamp-collecting, etc. We can develop some of these activities into our hobbies. A hobby lifts our spirits high, when we are depressed.
There are people who, at one time or the other, followed hobbies as professions and earned for themselves name as well as fame.
My hobby is gardening and I have grown a beautiful garden in my house. It is divided into two parts, one of which is for flowers and herbal plants of different varieties. I look after my plants and water them daily. I keep the spot neat and clean. Colours and fragrance of flowers are source of pleasure for me.
Sometimes, I invite my friends to visit my garden. They also enjoy the beauty and smell of flowers and site relaxed. In the second half of my garden, I grow vegetables. I grow tomatoes and some seasonal vegetables in it. Daily I pluck two or three tomatoes and eat them raw,
I too grow carrot and radish in my small garden. They taste very refreshing and tasty. My garden is very useful to me. It keeps me busy and saves me from useless gossips. I am proud of my beautiful garden.
