    A strange vine that sprung up outside our fence. I am located in the west Texas (Sonora) area. If you can tip me off at it's name or anything I'd be greatful.

    Notice the strange orchid like flower, it also has many round latern type seed pods.

    It's an Aristolochia, or dutchman's pipe. You might want to check out the USDA PLANTS database to see if you can narrow it down to species (I'm swamped with work at the moment).
