Descriptive Writing Paragraph

Bring to life whatever you are describing: a place, an object, an action. Add a last line to the paragraph that summarizes what this place, this object, this action--this moment means to you.

    What do you think about when you hear the word ranch? I think about the delicious smell of nature, the sight of no other houses and the beautiful mountains, the sounds of sprinkler pipes and wild animals, and the taste of wild raspberries. Standing on the back porch of my Aunt's and Uncle's ranch, I see cows eating, horses roaming, magnificent mountains and the sweet sight of nature. Although it smells like horse and cow in some places, that always reminds me of where I am, and what a glorious gift it is. Even though changing sprinkler pipes can be a pain, I love being able to jut lay on the lawn and listen to them. Hearing coyotes and hyenas, can always be a fright, but their sound is so pleasant. And wild raspberries all over the place are a refreshing taste in my mouth!

    When i think about Wisconsin. My senses come to life. I feel as though they are stronger there because maybe the humidity but also because maybe i just really let them hear what they wanted to hear or smell what i wanted to smell. So starting with my hearing i would always hear birds chirping in the morning waiting for the bus. I could smell the fresh flowers springing out in may. The taste of cheese really grew on me while i was there. i guess that's why they call it the cheese state.Just touching the frigid snow in the winter made your fingers turn blue. Wisconsin also brings much different sights then Colorado it brought lakes! Seeing Lake Michigan was such a cool thing even the tenth time. Senses they are really amazing.
