I found this plant (Cardiospermum  halicacabum) in the grass fields near a lake. Balloon vine is a herbaceous climbing plant. When you touched the fruit, its filled with air, just like a balloon.  The fruit started as green then turned red. When I started taking its pictures, Christine  commented that it’s a food to snakes. Then I asked why? She said ” I don’t know, it’s knowledge that  was just passed along to me.
