Here we are. Eye of the Day. A “garden design center” in the peaceful California coastal town of Carpinteria. At our store we have a VERY BIG selection of things that we want to talk to you about AND that are waiting to be placed in a garden.
We are going to show you our discoveries as we, yes, discover them and invite you into Eye of the Day through photographs. That is, until you visit in person.
There is always A LOT of activity at Eye of the Day. The container from Italy, loaded with terracotta pots of all sizes and shapes arrives at the Port of Los Angeles and high-tails it up to Carpinteria for us to unload, inspect and artistically place for our customers to see. A group from a Northern California Garden Club visits for a tour conducted by our leader Brent, and learns what container is best for which plant. One of our California manufactures of concrete fountains, birdbaths, statuary and benches arrives for an observational visit to see how we have displayed their merchandise. Lisa, our merchandising whiz, is deciding how best to show off the recently received old Greek jars in our well-endowed Greenhouse. And all in one day, too!
Through it all, we welcome our familiar customers and the new ones, wide-eyed with wonder at the beauty and abundance of our store. If you have yet to visit us, here is a taste. Check back with us often to find out what’s new or not new but still exciting at Eye of the Day.
