unknown vine

I purchased a miniature rose in early june and kept it in the original pot that it cane in. I kept it on my deck all summer and by the end of summer I noticed a small vine starting to grow in the dirt with the rose. I transplanted the rose in the ground and put up some stakes for this vine to grow on. At first I thought it might be some type of morning glory but the leaves are different. They look like a grape leaf. Same shape.I have pics but i'm unsure how to upload to this forum.Any help with this mystery vine would be great! I live in the southern part of NY. Thanks.

I use Photobucket to upload pics. Does your vine have any berries? Maybe it's a Porcelain Berry?

RE: unknown vine

I'm trying to use photobucket so you can see. No this vine doesn't have any berries. I'm very curious about this vine.

It is some sort of cucumber or melon. LOL.
Life's little surprises!

RE: unknown vine

LOL!! Isn't that something! my cucumber garden didn't grow very well this summer. The plants all died befor they produced any fruit! Oh well, I guess we always learn a little something along the way! Thanks for your help.

RE: unknown vine

Sure does look like my "lemon" cucumber vines, especially with those tendrils. There's another mystery vine thread around here somewhere with a similar photo.
