Is this bind weed or morning glory? I guess it doesn't make much of a difference. I think it's pretty either way but I would like to know what it is just because. I'm having trouble finding online how to tell the difference. Most of the pictures of Texas bindweed I see have pink and white blooms. On the fence, the morning glory or bindweed is mixed in with some pesky snailseed/moonseed but I uprooted some offsets and planted them in my birdbath, maybe you can see the leaf shape better there. . (We got a lot of rain this morning)

Thanks!

Compare to Ipomoea cordatotriloba, and good ol' I. purpurea.

Wild Morning Glory (Ipomoea cordatotriloba) was my first thought also.

It looks exactly like that. I'm glad I've finally figured out what both of my "mystery" vines are and which one can stay and which has to go!! Thanks!!
