The mystery plant for June 2020
is a vine which is more frequently
found at sites well south of New England
but it also can be found
growing in Rhode Island. 
This vine twines around the tree,
upward for 30-40 feet or more.
The alternate leaves are large
and heart-shaped. 
The vine flowers  in June and the flowers
are shaped like a pipe used for smoking. 
The plant produces a cucumber-like fruit.
