If it were yesterday, I would be saying “here today, gone tomorrow” about this most recent group of rock ladies. But of course, yesterday I did not know what I know today.
I put them in the grotto at Lorimer Park to replace the ones that left last week. These ladies were smaller than the earlier ones – I pick up stones that wash down from the rock walls in the area of the trail, and I try to match up stones that will stand up securely and are also similar in size. These ladies were short.
Anyway, I put them in their spot yesterday morning. This morning – they’ve already taken someone’s eye and gone on their way!
Not knowing any of this, I had brought along this lady painted on a wood chip – she’s now in one of the abandoned train control boxes. About a mile or so from the grotto.
I’ll look for her tomorrow…
