Brian,

This looks like a very nice park.  I love historic homes and places and really like your post.

Thanks, Cynthia.  I'm a big fan of historic homes, too.  In the past I restored several myself.

This is a VERY beautiful place, Brian. I love the name 'The Garden of the Five Senses' !  How perfect. The waterfalls would provide the sound and the gardens would provide the other four. I love the architecture of the old farmhouse and these pictures help me to feel like I am right there.

I think I will have to plan a trip to Lancaster next year, especially if you keep posting these kinds of posts. ((-:

Jo, the Garden of the Five Senses was a very peaceful place, especially on the beautiful July morning I took the photos.  I hope you do get to come out.

Three of my favourite things ~ Peace, Gardens and History. What could be finer ? I hope you keep blogging about the beautiful historical places and intriguing history of your area, Brian. I really enjoy these kinds of posts.

I've been meaning to do some history posts myself for my OldEastHill.com  blog . We have some truly wonderful historic houses and buildings here in Belleville and on the island across the way from us, Prince Edward County.

You're an excellent photographer. I think I am going to have to get a better camera. Mine is about 4 years old now and digitals have come a long way since then.

Jo, if you do any history posts on your blog, I hope you post them for AR as well.

Brian, I have come to learn that google does not like you to duplicate posts on blogs and will penalize you. This is concerning to me since I like to post my blogs at AR first and then channel them off to one of my other blogs.

Now I realize that I will have to change the titles and mix them up a bit before doing so. If only there were more hours in the day or I could cause time to expand whenever I needed some extra !

You did inspire me to get to work writing some history blogs though, and  this week I am going to write one on my favourite local historical site. I will definitely post it here at AR. Thanks !

Jo, you may have a point about duplicate blogs on different locations.  I still want to figure out how to put my blogs on my website as well as on AR.  I don't plan on letting Google dictate what or where I can post.

Brian , I don't want to let Google dictate what or where I post either. Unfortunately, they are the number one search engine and if we don't go by what they like, they penalize our position. I have already seen it happen with some of my duplicated blog posts. Although I write because I love to write and share ideas, knowledge, experiences , etc ,  some of my posts are to serve my community and better position my business to attract new clients. I guess the only way around it is to change the title slightly and also change the wording of the post somewhat.

Jo, let me know if you have any better luck with Google when you change your posts slightly on different sites.

Brian, will do.  For now I am getting the STRANGEST key words bringing people to my blogs. For instance,  one of the latest ones is someone  typed 'how do I walk away from my mortgage'  in their google search bar, and guess whose post was in the top ten ??  My 'Walk Away Power' post. Go Google !  (and it was absolutely nothing to do with mortgages ). Keeping track of which key words attract people to your post is a very good thing. All sorts of people worried about bat droppings are now reading my blog.  oh my.
