Growing wild on my property in North Central Fl. Trying to figure out if it's a native or if a bird gifted them.

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

It looks a lot like something that is also growing all over the place here in Texas. I always considered it an invasive.

That looks vaguely familiar to me. You might try asking over in the Vines and Climbers forum.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Wonder if it's Tievine (Ipomoea cordatotriloba var. cordatotriloba) It became a pest at our old house, climbing to the roof of the house, through the trees etc. Beautiful but has invasive tendencies ... at least in this area.

Thanks, I think so too. Glad you chimed in Jay, I saw you put some photos in the db of the same. It's wrapping around a pecan tree in the photos. I saw some more coming up in the same general area there. Guess I get to go pull it out. So pretty, I'm tempted to leave it till frost gets it but last year our first killing frost was Thanksgiving day & it might be to the top of the tree by that time!
