I'm trying to identify this invasive weed that is crawling around in my garden pretty much everywhere. It's the only one that consisteltly makes it through my layer of mulch. It's a climber, in the summer it's all over the tomatoes and sunflowers.

Does anybody know what it is ?

Sheep sorrel is the first thing that's popping in my head, but I don't think that's what it is. Do you have any pic of the older plants, maybe with flowers or seedheads?

I found a picture of the flower. The seed pods are round about half a centimeter wide and the seeds about two milimeters and black half-round with corners. Seedpod and seeds are similar to morning glory ones, but a little bit smaller.

On the image you can see the flower and also some small flower buds.
