It was Tuesday 21 November when we saw a balloon seller with these Helium balloons in Rome:

I didn’t buy one.

It was Wednesday 22 November when I spotted a popped one stuck in a tree:

The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) annual “Beachwatch” survey in 2011 collected more than 1,359 balloons from UK beaches, over three times as many found in 1996. Turtles eat them mistaking them for jellyfish.

Don’t buy one. There are better ways of saying “I love you” than “Let’s kill wildlife together”.
