The weatherfish shows the wind is blowing in that direction.
I normally move my weatherfish inside for the winter so it won’t fade or get tattered in winter storms, but I missed the colors out in the garden. I think it looks great against the snow which was busily melting on yesterday’s strangely warm and very windy morning. Without the burden of an extra ten inches or so of snow, all the grasses and asters and goldenrod were dancing in the wind, dry fronds flapping like ribbons, the weatherfish pointing the way.
The weatherfish doesn’t do much but spin its propeller tail and turn the way the wind is blowing, get wet when it rains and get covered with snow when it snows, but it truly is a welcome sight out in the yard in this still life of all the things I didn’t put away last year.
