How did the beautiful garden compensate for the loss that Helen had undergone ?

You can work on the following points:
Helen Keller suffered a debilitating illness at the age of only nineteen months and was left blind and deaf.
Her efforts to communicate afterwards are mostly unsuccesful at first and she cannot contemplate the new experience of "silence and darkness that surrounded" her.
Helen's recollections of the outdoors, " a luminous sky, trees and flowers" are the things she remembers clinging to as the unexplained illness, probably meningitis or Scarlet Fever, "could not wholly blot out" these memories.
She knows the where the old house is from the familiar feel and smell of the vibes.
After throwing a fit of temper, she hid her hot face in the cool leaves and grass. She wandered happily from spot to spot, until she came upon the beautiful vine which covered the tumble-down summer-house at the farther end of the garden.
