Sample Answer

I would like to share my impressions of a garden that I visited last summer, full of colour: Claude Monet’s house and garden in Giverny, France.

As a big fan of Monet’s paintings, especially the famous “Water Lilies”, I had always dreamt of seeing them in real life. So, when some friends suggested a visit last year, I jumped at the chance. After a journey of about an hour by train from our hotel, we arrived at Giverny. The garden was exactly as he had painted it – it was a riot of colour, from the peaceful white of the water lilies to the striking reds and oranges which filled some of the flowerbeds. The two parts of the garden complemented each other perfectly. We first admired the array of bright flowers and fruit trees in the Clos Normand, but my favorite part was the water garden, and we enjoyed a stroll, taking in all the colors, smells, and bird songs. Monet avidly collected prints of Japanese gardens. These inspired the Japanese bridges covered with wisterias, the pond’s water lilies, and the bamboo and weeping willows he planted.
For me, it was like a wonderland of colors and a dream come true after so many years.
