EVERY GARDEN NEEDS A WINDSOCK
A windsock or wind cone is a tube made of fabric (nylon or some type of plastic can be used also) designed to indicate the direction of the wind and, in some situations, the relative wind speed.
Windsocks are often used at airports to gauge wind direction or alongside highways at windy locations to warn of gusts and strong breezes.
