    I've seen it I think. Does it have a nice scent?

    I don't think it is honeysuckle though. The leaves are too glossy. And I don't think the honeysuckle flowers are born in such tight clusters.

    Jasmine of some description, I reckon, especially if it is strongly scented.

    Thanks, all. You pointed me in the right direction by the word honeysuckle. I'm pretty sure it is the Fly Honeysuckle, lonicera canadensis. Very abundant around here and a native species. The leaves appear glossy because it had just rained.
