Default Please identify this flower

Grows wild on one small, well-defined area of my farm. Extreme fern-like leaves, small flowers resemble morning glories.

Though it currently grows as a weed, I think the leaves are attractive, maybe I can use them as ground cover or let it climb a fence.

Thanks for any assistance,
Jay

I recently attended a symposium for Master Gardeners where I learned that this ANNUAL vine can become extremely invasive in the south eastern states! Who knew?

Doesn't tolerate cold, dies easily with a proper winter. For places warm enough for this to be perennial, yep, invasive. My patch apparently just dies and re-seeds every year.
