I am so frustrated and am hoping someone can help me identify my particular weed and how to get rid of them. I have the same problem EVERY year. The weed is a twining plant that winds itself up all of my flowers in the backyard. I pull them all out in the spring and they come back SO fast! Eventually it produces little whitish pink flowers on the vines - usually after I have given up and not pulled them out in the 100 degree weather in Oklahoma. Any thoughts?

Oh darn. The links don't copy into the blog comment...
From your description, it could be Field Bindweed.
Thank you all so much for the quick responses. It definitely looks like Field Bindweed. I am afraid that it has definitely formed a pretty permanent home in my back garden. I have found some information on the internet and will attempt to find out ways to try and eradicate it. Pulling it out obviously doesn't work - it's back before you even blink. Canadian Chelsea (I am a transplanted Canadian living in Oklahoma...) how do I keep it from seeding?
Keep pulling it up before the flowers go to seed. Back-breaking job but it is the only way to get rid of it other than putting a tarp or barrier down to smother it.
