Interesting... I'll look into that. Thank you.

This looks like the terminal perfoliate (leaves that appear to be joined around a stem) leaves of a honeysuckle (Lonicera sp.) vine with some developing berries. There are several species of honeysuckle vines and bushes in Michigan (http://seedguide.blogspot.com/2012/09/ov...). The bushes don't seem to have this terminal leaf/bract structure; they seem to flower along the stem. Could this have been a vine in the bush? You may have to re-visit when it's flowering to solve this unless someone locally can help. Good luck!
