ID of vine please?

Postby justjoyful » Mon Oct 07, 2013 1:27 pm

This plant, which looks like a vine of some sort, has started growing along the fence in our back yard. My first thought was that it was a weed (it's a constant battle for me to keep the weeds at bay here), but it looks to have a pretty little flower. Does anyone know what it is?

weed or not?

I suspect it's a weed, as I have pulled out similar, but maybe wait for someone who knows for sure.

Another vote for weed. I pull them out of my garden too.

My best guess would be Epilobium.
