Wayd to protect solar lights

Posted: Today at 00:15

If the wire was cut, was it because the solar light bothered anybody?  I know that if my neighbour installed wind chimes I would cut them down in a trice.

Help to identify strange plant

As the seeds ripen the coils will stretch out and the seeds will be dispersed around the plant. Do not remove them until they are ripe if you want to spread the seeds about.
