can you please identify this climbing plan? It starts growing in early June and has white flowers (that look jasmine like) in late Sept, early Oct. Then it wilts as winter starts. I live in Rhode Island.

Hi sreda, I can't see those leaves clearly at all to determine an exact ID but my first thought was maybe American Virgin's Bower (Clematis virginiana)

We have many photos in our database (blue link posted above) but here are a couple for comparison:

Hi, thanks for the response. If you click my pic please, you can get a zoomed in clearer image. The shape of the leaves in Clematis virginiana look different than mine. I am thinking mine could be Clematis Huldine. What do you think?

We get an enlarged picture but not a clear and close up picture of the leaves. Clematis can't be IDed just from leaves alone, we would need a bloom photo, even then, there are many white blooming ones.
