Puff Love

This spring, we discovered several packets of seeds for different annual vines. With three acres to deal with, I don't normally mess with annuals. If I have to plant it more than once, forget it. But just for giggles, we threw some of them out by the fence around Kirby's yard. Most of them...eh.
But there was one that is now a favorite, and will probably stay. Hopefully it will reseed itself. Hopefully, it will not make become a nuisance. I give you:

Love-in-a-Puff Vine

Sweet little white flowers that persist all season, unique air-filled balloons, and adorable seeds with hearts on them. What's not to love?

Cardiospermum halicacabum--*if you live in warmer zones, this plant can become invasive.
