I thought this was a weed until it bloomed. Just noticed it last night. In the second picture I'm holding it up to try to get a better foliage picture and you see the back of the blooms. There aren't many leaves on this vine and I'm holding it in front of an Azalea because - well that's where it is. Gardens at this house are all very crowded. I have a bit of work sorting it all out.

It may reseed like crazy so be on the lookout.

The stems are interesting. It could be the Everlasting Pea/Lathyrus latifolius

@Zencat @greene Thanks to both of you! Sorry to be so long getting back to you.

@Zencat Thanks for the warning :)

@greene I believe you are right that its the Everlasting Pea. I checked out your link and the pictures look exactly like mine.
