An absolutely beautiful place! We really enjoyed walking through the gardens. Leslie and Tom are very gracious hosts and extremely knowledgeable. We learned a lot and appreciate the time they took to answer all of our questions and share their passion with us. Would highly recommend visiting them.

Thank you again for your graciousness yesterday, May 15, to me in making it so easy to tour your lovely Birdsong Pleasure Garden, and the Open House was a special treat. You both have done a remarkable job and make it special to share it with others.
I look forward to visiting with you in the fall.
Keep on keepin' on. 😅

Thank you so much for having me over to see your gardens. They are just unbelieeable and so wonderful - a true hidden treasure in Luray. It was such a treat to see the "bare bones" picture, and the amazing result of all your work. I learned a few things - I do want a bald cyperss - something I've "waffled on" for years; sawdust makes an outstanding path, and on so many acres a golf cart is a must! Your property is amazing and it is so nice that you happily share it with everyone.

Thank you so much for opening up your home and garden to the Master Gardeners for our June Association Meeting. It was a beautiful day and on behalf of NSVMGA, thanks for the personal tours of Birdsong Pleasure Garden, truly a labor of love!
Great info. Lucky me I found your website by accident
(stumbleupon). I've saved it for later!

You have "made my day"! I just finished looking at your on-line information and clearly Birdsong Pleasure Garden is exactly the type of "Must See Garden" that I was looking for.

We loved exploring The Birdsong Pleasure Garden this weekend. I was surprised how many things were in bloom even in January! The trees were showing off their leafless limbs: some twisting, some smooth, some peeling bark like old books. Little sculptures came out of hiding and the pine forest took center stage with its many different kinds of evergreen needles. We learned the names of many winter blooming flowers and shrubs and watched the birds feasting at the feeders. All this surrounded by majestic mountains and rolling farm hillsides. It was a truly relaxing and refreshing day!

Thank you Lesley & Tom, your gardens are unbelievable and so wonderful - a true hidden treasure in Luray. It was such a treat to see the "bare bones" picture, and then the amazing result of all

in this labor of love. It was quite a refreshing.
