Definitely Honeysuckle... either Glaucous Honeysuckle (Lonicera dioica) or Hairy Honeysuckle (Lonicera hirsuta).
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!
