One December afternoon as they were strolling down the village, Naldo picked and handed a light brown thin-walled, papery, inflated capsule-like fruit to Shirl. He then asked her to open it for the surprise it contains. Shirl opened it slowly making sure not to drop the surprise for she was certain that it would be small. Inside were THREE black seeds with white PERFECT HEART markings on them. Shirl smiled. Naldo got a kiss.
These seeds are from the plant called Balloon Vine with the scientific name Cardiospermum grandiflorum ("fuusen-kazura"). The brown fruits of the Balloon Vine always have 3 seeds inside- perfect for saying "i love you". Those 3 little seeds will truly be appreciated by your special someone. It's simple, sweet and naturally impressive. So if you come across this weed, don't forget to pick one balloon. Make sure you get the BROWN one because the seeds in the green ones aren't fully developed yet.
