    Hi Lesley,
    Thank you for the photos!

    We had a lovely dinner with the eggplants and tomatoes you guys gave us! We pan fried them together with Italian seasoning, salt, and some red pepper flakes, and they were absolutely delicious!

    Thank you for what you guys do, and the wonderful message being sent to everyone.

    Zoe, Karen, Eva and Jelly

    It's decent. Probably more so if you're super into gardening, which I am not. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and they have a wonderful view of the mountains behind the property as well. The lady running the VIP tour was super nice and cut us a deal without asking when we had to cut our visit short. If this is up your alley, pay them a visit. But it's by appointment only, so make sure you plan ahead.

    We sure enjoyed our tour. I never tire of visiting your beautiful place. You and Tom have created a little paradise there. So much work - but is is obviously a labor of love for you two. Thank you for sharing it with the world. All the best, Julia

    We did our wedding "First Look" at the garden and it was spectacular!

    Leslie was very kind and accommodating.

    Worth a visit!

    Take the VIP tour ! A wonderful, informative and peaceful time. This couple acre spot has a natural yet cultivated vibe. We are moving into a home in the country and this type landscape is very much what we plan to do, albeit on a smaller scale. Lesley will not disappoint with her knowledge and experience.

  • Carolyn Saunders (Friday, June 17 22 09:31 am EDT)

    Leslie and Tom, both know soooo much about their plants. We enjoyed every minute of our visit.

  • Teresa Campbell (Tuesday, June 14 22 01:46 pm EDT)

  • Ruth & Richard (Monday, April 18 22 10:48 am EDT)

    Dear Lesley and Tom,
    This is the most beautiful 3 acres in Virginia! Lesley and Tom are charming and exceedingly patient! The gardens are the glorious product of 30 yrs of loving, artist, savvy work. They are available to visit, for picnics, engagements, so much more. All fees are donated to Virginia Land Conservancy.

  • Beth, Mary, Patrice, Peg - Sisters (Saturday, February 19 22 04:35 pm EST)

    We so enjoyed your beautiful gardens and meeting you and Tom.
    We are taking home a delightful memory. Thank you!

  • Judy Bradley, New Market, VA. (Saturday, February 19 22 04:29 pm EST)

    I was looking for things to do with my 94 year old dad in Luray and came across your gardens. So glad that we called you, my Dad really enjoyed talking to you both and your gardens are beautiful!!
    (Sorry it took me so long to write.)

  • Martha Randolph-Macon Academy (Thursday, January 20 22 12:36 pm EST)

    Thanks so much Lesley.
    You and Tom made the field trip so much fun for the kids.

    Also, I got to remember how awesome gardening is and felt inspired not only to take care of my indoor plants but my outdoor plants.
    Gardening is such a lovely practice. My hope is that maybe, not now but somewhere along the future, these kids can remember the trip and the place and head back to your garden with their families. They can experience it at different seasons and learn to cultivate.

    Perhaps, that will put into perspective that they are part of a bigger environment. They are learning so many things now but one day it will all click.

    A few people were already connecting the dots as to how the subjects they are learning in school work together. All this to say that they are learning how things work :)

  • Joan Biddle (Tuesday, November 23 21 10:59 am EST)

    Dear Lesley,
    We loved our tour of your impressive garden. The collections and placement of material throughout the three acres was gorgeous. Clearly it has been and continues to be a labor of love and benefits so many creatures, critters and people too.

    Thanks for the photos. They are a reminder of the beauty of your property:))

  • John Hunter (Tuesday, November 23 21 10:57 am EST)

    You may recall, that our friend, David arranged a lovely day at your garden for Ben and our son, Michael, and grandson, Cole. You very kindly gave me a ginkgo tree. I am pleased to report that the “tree” is thriving and it now 18 inches. Should you and your husband ever be planning a trip to Browntown way, we should be delighted if you would visit us. We spend a great deal of time working in the gardens but they cannot compete with your beautiful gardens!

    This an absolute must-see if you're in the area! Not only is the garden absolutely amazing, but the owners are so very kind and full of knowledge about all plants and flowers! I was shocked to learn that they owners do all of the work plus the tours.

    Long story short, this garden is gorgeous and I highly recommend checking it out. Also, reserve a spot for a picnic, we booked in advance and enjoyed lunch with a gorgeous view!

    What a fantastic garden tour done by people who clearly love gardening and flowers. A beautiful 3+ acres to stroll through.

  • Donna (Monday, October 25 21 11:33 am EDT)

    Steve and I just wanted to say it was a pleasure meeting you both and really enjoyed our time spent with you. I wish we could have stayed longer. We're heading home tomorrow but will keep in touch. Please keep doing what you are doing because you do it well!

  • Bill and Lisa (Monday, October 25 21 11:30 am EDT)

    Great meeting both of you. I grew up farming and gardening and I have a great appreciation for the beautiful work you two have created over time. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality. See you in the spring.

    Lesley and Tom,
    What a pleasure it was to tour your Birdsong Pleasure
    Garden ~
    What love, dedication and vision is shown at every turn. I might have to make this a seasonal venture to enjoy all your garden has to offer. It is truly "a Designated Virginia Treasure site." Thank you for sharing it with the world. My best to you both ~ Anne

  • John Thomas (Thursday, October 14 21 05:43 pm EDT)

    Hi Lesley, just a note of appreciation to you and Tom for the garden tour yesterday. I was amazed at the work you’ve done there and the beautiful retreat you’ve created. A wonderfully designed garden, with interesting plants and thoughtful plant combinations. Every garden is different, but yours is outstanding. I’d like to come back, and take the tour again.

    Thanks for such a thoroughly enjoyable visit.

  • Vickie Comer (Thursday, October 07 21 10:56 am EDT)

    Yesterday we decided to take a break and go enjoy the local scenery since the day was absolutely beautiful. We visited a place I have wanted to go to for over a year and it was so rewarding! Thank you Birdsong Pleasure Garden for letting us tour your beautiful gardens and spending so much time educating us on plants, trees, flowers and horticulture. We learned so much and you have reignited our passion for gardening!! It was truly amazing. Your gardens and you both are truly beautiful. We are so happy and grateful there are folks like you that have so much passion for nature! For anyone who has not visited Birdsong Pleasure Gardens you are missing out!

    Dear Lesley and Tom,
    Thank you for welcoming us to your little piece of heaven last weekend. Your gardens are lovely, educational, and inspiring, a testament to what three decades, a great vision, and a lot of hard work can accomplish. As I look out at all the tasks that await me in my garden, I'm especially overwhelmed by your generosity in opening it for visitors and giving such an interesting and comprehensive tour. We enjoyed it immensley.
    Lesley Bell

    Thank you for a great afternoon.

  • Jacob Williams (Sunday, August 01 21 06:32 pm EDT)

    I visited Birdsong Pleasure Garden today with friends while off from work. It was a wonderful getaway that we all appreciated. I enjoyed seeing all the plants and landscaping with the mountains nearby. Tom gave us a tour and did a wonderful job explaining everything. My friends and I all said after leaving that he was exceptionally kind. I would definitely recommend making a stop here.

    Your beautiful land.
