Sunny skies and warm temperatures made for picture-perfect strolls through the five stops of the Eastern Shore Garden Tour Saturday, April 24.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, organizers halved the usual number of tickets, from over 1,000 to about 500, and switched to bracelets from printed tickets.

The stops this year were 100 Creekside Lane, Cape Charles; the Flower Design Show, at Bay Creek’s Life Center, Cape Charles; the former Cobb Island Coast Guard Station, Oyster; Eyre Hall, Cheriton; and the Barrier Islands Center, Machipongo.
